Research is not a linear process, and yet most if not all of the theses are written up in a way that the research has been taken place in a linear way.
Moreover, the amount of literature related to the research problem or related to possible methods is overwhelming and endless.
It therefore is of no surprise that it can be a tricky undertaking to understand how robust and relevant the findings are, without being able to answer simple questions, such as “…relevant to what?”.
Writing up and structuring your thesis is part of the DoctorateHub’s Advanced Training Series. The course will provide hand-on training to allow participants to establish boundaries and to learn about suitable approaches and techniques, such as mirroring, so to juggle across the various chapters of their thesis and to build up their thesis structure and narrative.
It will sharpen their notion that consistency, preciseness and constant re-examination and revision all matter so to get the thesis written up and done.
Participants in this eight-weeks course will learn how to make sense of their emergent findings and how to build up their thesis around these.
This course is suitable for participants in the following Thesis stage:
While we prefer a minimum of 3 participants per course, we understand that the doctorate is a very individual undertaking. Therefore, we are open to deliver courses at an individual level.
Participants in this eight-weeks course will:
This eight-week course will cover the following topics:
Week 1: Introduction: What is / are the Research Problem, Problem Domains, Problem Determinants and Variables, and Stakeholders to whom the Problem relates to?
Week 1 will consist of a stocktaking so to bring out how well the Research Problem, Problem Domains, Problem Determinants and Variables, and Stakeholders to whom the Problem relates are already understood, and where knowledge gaps do still exist.
Week 2: Findings: What are the apparent patterns and common themes?
Week 2 will call on the researcher’s perception aimed at bringing out the apparent patterns and common themes.
Week 3: Findings: What are the observed cause and effect relations?
Week 3 will work with the data and evidence that have been collected and how well these explain the findings.
Week 4: Findings: How well does the data supports your observations?
Week 4 will build on the week three outcomes and compare them against the week 1 and week 2 results.
Week 5: Literature Review: What is the Key Literature to the Findings, and what does it tell about these?
Week 5 will consist of relating the findings back to the literature, so to understand how findings and literature compare.
Week 6: Methodology: How does your method compares to the ones used in related studies?
Week 6 will compare the methods used in your research, against those applied in related studies and how this could have impacted the collected data and findings.
Week 7: Analysis and Evaluation: What have you found and what is still unclear?
Week 7 will analyse the achievements realised until to date and critically evaluate the current stage of the research.
Week 8: Planning ahead: How robust is your data and what is still missing? What are the next actions that should be taken?
The final Week 8 is dedicated to planning ahead and to outline what are the concrete next actions that should be taken.
