On the road again…..
I am pleased we continued our early thesis time together with a Spiral Journal protocol to help sharpen your perception about your early-stage development of your MA thesis work. I am so glad we took the time to focus a bit on the importance of the Library and the Kean University Learning Commons in terms of resources for developing your thesis. We will connect with Craig Anderson on 9/26. Craig is one of Kean’s excellent reference librarians, and we will participate in his workshop geared towards MA students doing research. You will learn more about the vast resources at your fingertips, which is most certainly an important step for your continual thesis work. I hope you will try a few other workshops there in the future that might be supportive, and also get to know a librarian or two at Kean, while you work on your thesis overall.
Here are the agenda slides from last class:
After settling the presentation calendar together, we also discussed the concept of an Early Proposal. Hopefully this helps you start to narrow the focus at the start of your formal journey with this big project. Please remember to write your first blog, after engaging in some free-writing, mind mapping, and some possible reading/research. Generate lists, and start your own process of discovery and invention.
I will see you next week in class.
