I had a big breakthrough in my dissertation proposal development today. My advisor, Dr. Mary Hess, helped me narrow down my research methodology.niwill not be doing any quantitative surveys or ethnographic interviewing. The research will be pure Participatory Action
Research that involves cohorts from three congregations over the course of one year.
Today I cross another waypoint along the road to a PhD. I have written my dissertation proposal. I don’t get to officially submit it until after I pass the comprehensive exams in September. You can read the pdf here. The Prezi on the home page is the public presentation I gave on Monday in class.
Special thanks to Dr. Alvin Luedke for guiding us through this process. We couldn’t have done it without your patience and wisdom.
Here’s a screenshot of how I am laying out Scrivener to help me prepare for Comprehensive Exams. I placed a .jpg of each book in the index card for each book. Within each card there is a document in which I will write my own review of the book. This functions well with my visual learning style.
