Join one of our two free Webinars on ‘Data-Literature Mirroring – a back and front juggle’.
The Webinar on Saturday 21st December 2019 will start at 12noon UK time (GMT) sharp, the Webinar on Saturday 11th January 2020 will start at 12noon UK time (GMT) sharp, so please log in a few minutes before in readiness.
For those new to the mirroring technique, please also be welcome to take a look at our earlier blog posts on this matter.
In a nutshell, Mirroring can be a key to REDUCE THE TIME: ‘time to problem understanding’, ‘time to results’, ‘time to key literature’, ‘time to methodology crafting, ‘time to write the thesis up’, and ultimately ‘time wasted’. Take a look at the below image to see for yourself how mirroring can guide you!
The point here is, that research is not a linear thing. And it is not like you are going to complete your thesis on a chapter after chapter base. As a matter of fact, you might not want to spend too much time on the initial literature review chapter. You sure will need to build up a robust knowledge base around your research problem, and this surely will require a good amount of initial readings. But the criticality of the literature review will come from the critical contrasting of your findings and observation against those provided in the literature. Given that at the initial stage your findings and observations, and your understanding about your research problem will be relatively limited, so will be the degree to which you will manage to engage into a critical literature review. But with the findings and observations becoming more and more available, and your problem understanding more precise and sharp, so will your literature review mature over time.
The focus of this webinar is therefore to shed some light on the back and front juggle that will allow you to gradually mirror out the structure of your literature review chapter and so to assure that literature review, data and findings, and analysis and evaluation all add up.
