Oops, I accidentally covered this a little bit the other day!
So, one of my classes this semester is Field Methods of Research. We've talked about all sorts of things that had never occurred to me before (at least, not in the academic research context), like diary studies and prototyping, and read about research from both the academic and practitioner angles.
I opted for a survey for my research project, but I've found that those around me are pretty excited about me researching parents and bicycling. I guess I'm excited, too, but WOW, with the semester almost over I feel pretty overwhelmed. Yipe.
And yeah, I'm still wading through my research articles that I mentioned a few days ago. I predict that my review of the existing literature section and my suggestions for future research sections of the final paper will both be quite lengthy.
What are we talking about today?
Here's what I'm probably talking about on any given day, although knowing me there's always a chance I've gone right off the rails:
Sunday-- Christianity, Spirituality, or similar Sunday-ish things
Wednesday-- Grad School
Thursday-- Random Stuff I'm Thinking
Friday-- Green or Healthy Living
Saturday-- Transportation (buses, bikes, walking)
This doesn't mean I'm here every day, but these are the days I'll generally try to stick my topics into.
