It’s been quite a week!
Nonetheless, I have just completed the first draft of my research proposal. I found a very convenient e-publication of a chapter by Clarke and Braun on qualitative research, and an equally useful document from the British Educational Research Association, with Ethical Guidelines for Educational Research. Confident that I seem to have touched upon the most essential issues, I shall await feedback from my supervisor, but I’ll also very cautiously think about the ethical approval form, which is somewhat intimidating!
The abovementioned resources have been added to my research proposal bibliography, and will now be added to my full resource-list, too. (They’ve already made it into my Mendeley account. I am a very model student with regard to bibliographical citations!)
