We worked out that I should focus on three strands of library use:
This is a better fit for a PhD, although it is too big for a Masters. The idea is that I go for confirmation with the Masters and they think is so wide and and wonderful that I should convert to a PhD.
Peter has sent me a template document for the Confirmation process which I haven't looked at yet, but I am grateful for because I felt a bit like I was walking around in the dark, not knowing what I was aiming for. Now I have a structure to work within, I feel more comfortable.
We talked about a research methodology again. I said that I thought 'Action Research' wasn't feeling right and suggested either "grounded theory' or 'phenomenology'. They both said that the head of school hates 'grounded theory' and that is seen as a bit of a joke, or the theory that you have when you don't have a theory. So, I have been investigating phenomenology this morning. It seems very philosophical, but looks like it might fit quite well. I will look into it further. I don't mind not using grounded theory as it felt so unstructured and I like having a skeleton to hang my work from.
Here are the Muppets explaining phenomenology:
It didn't really help!
This one did though:
