I’m finding the secondary research beneficial to expanding my knowledge of my topic. Relevant articles, podcasts and videos are easily accessible online, and these are what I have used so far. I plan on visiting my local library to see if I can find books in relation to my research.
While researching initially, I realized I had to take a different approach to my topic. This was due to my original idea being too broad, and I became confused and easily carried away with what I was looking for. I told the tutor that I was considering modifying my approach to the topic, and they agreed that I would be better off doing so.
From now, I think it will take approximately 3 more hours to find all of the information that I am looking for.
I am keeping up to date with the tasks outlined in the project management plan so I do not have to rush to get everything done later on.
In terms of research, I am enjoying the process. At first, I was unsure of what my focus really was and what information I needed to get, which made me feel overwhelmed. It was a case of information overload. However, since adjusting my focus, I have found this much more enjoyable and feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am interested in my topic, and look forward to my classes and homework where I work on it.
