Your thesis should always be new research that helps to advance your field of study.
You may find that someone has already explored the question you have in mind.
You can present the same information by writing a narrative.
Your narrative should summarize the variables influencing your research and explore how they may change your hypothesis.
This will not only add to the transparency of your work but will also help you interpret your findings.
3) Don’t forget the theory Qualitative researchers use theories as a lens through which they understand the world around them.You can present this in whatever way makes the most sense for your work, which can include a flow chart, mind map or diagram.For each component of your research, you should show the variables that influence it.Conducting the literature review can help you to refine your central argument or hypothesis.You must also conduct the literature review to be able to place your work within the larger field of study in your conceptual framework.Your framework should introduce the relevant research and show how your work will help to advance the field.Conceptual frameworks are often visual in nature and allow those reading the framework to understand the flow of your research.Doing qualitative research requires you to adopt a different way of seeing and interpreting the world around you.Veronika asks her students to reflect on positivist and interpretivist approaches: If you come from a scientific or medical background, positivism is often the unacknowledged status quo.You should return to your framework and revise it as necessary. It should be considered an adaptable guide as you work through your thesis.It should be seen as a partner to your thesis and should be updated as necessary.
