Eight months in and time for residential. Also time to take a step or two back to outline the bigger picture. At the moment I am immersed in many unfamiliar concepts and ways of thinking which through practice are becoming clearer (and often fuzzier). I am still in the phase where I am admiring the trees.
Three questions to reflect upon:
- What is my conceptual framework?
- How will I generate ‘new knowledge’?
- What is my proposed methodology?
An attempt to visually map the field of the research is included below. In making the map it occurs to me that it needs to be cylindrical, or better, spherical to reflect connections a little more clearly.
