Writing up a Qualitative PhD
Whether you are doing a traditional PhD or a PhD by publication, ‘writing up’ should never be something left to the end of your research. Instead, writing should be a continuous process, learning from your supervisor, your peers and your own mistakes. I examine how this writing up can be accomplished efficiently if rarely painlessly.
This masterclass is taught via lectures, small group workshops followed by feedback sessions and one-to-ones with all participants. Whether you are just starting a research degree or in your final year, this is the course for you.
Among the topics covered are:
* The PhD as an apprenticeship. What ‘originality’ means. * Learning from your supervisor and your peer groups * The need for consistency. Fitting your research question and methodology to your research model. * Reassurance strategies when difficulties arise: the low bar in qualitative research. * Designing a methodology that allows for rapid data gathering and early data analysis. * Practical suggestions about when to write a literature review and what it should contain. * How to avoid dull methodology chapters. Keeping a research diary. * How to write credible and interesting data chapters. What to include and what to omit. * Concluding chapters that are not summaries but which stretch the imagination. * Writing publishable journal articles
