Action Planning

September 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

For the first semester of our thesis class we will need to produce a thesis project proposal. The proposal consists of: researchable question, sub questions, justification, limitations, literature review and a research plan for the second semester.

The first draft of the proposal is due Oct. 26. To ensure that I have the draft completed on time I created an “Action Plan for the Thesis Proposal Draft.” To do this I identified what content I needed to produce (see above) and the actions I would need to take to develop the content. These actions essentially consisted of research, writing, creating visuals, talking with faculty, refinement, more research and decision making. Some sub-level actions needed to meet other demands of class include regular blogging and creating visualizations.

On to the Action Plan:

Week 4 // Sept. 14 ->

  • create visual by Friday showing content spaces
  • continue developing research questions
  • continue research
  • blog

Week 5 // Sept. 21 ->

  • continue focusing in on a research question
  • identify sub questions
  • meet w/ faculty re: content space
  • blog

  • narrow to focused questions, refine them
