Hi and Welcome to my first post on “Qualitative PhD Research”.
I’m a Phd researcher/scholar/candidate and my research is qualitative- very messy, very flexible, cross-cultural, multi-lingual, across several continents and time-zones using video, audio, action research, local collaboration (at this stage can you believe my Supervisors actually let me pass the Doctoral Assessment?), ground theory method- just to name a bit of it.
So – I decided to start this blog to share some of my highs and lows, tips and tricks- pass on other blogs and posts I find interesting. To try and document some of the messiness and clarity that comes in waves throughout my research journey.
I’m not an academic (yet) – I haven’t submitted my thesis (yet) and I’ve been doing it for 5 years and counting.
So- if you are a Phd student or thinking of becoming one- I hope you enjoy this blog.
