I just received my provisional feedback on my first doctoral assignment at Lancaster University. My traditional research paper (completed in 5 weeks: research design and all!) was entitled Educational Explorations of Autoethnographic Inquiry: A Case Study of the Goals and Experiences of Three Educators, and in it I interviewed three individuals who are involved in higher education and who engage in autoethnographic inquiry.
What I particularly liked about the paper’s feedback was what my tutor targeted toward my final section, Personal Learnings, where I described my experience and processed what I learned using the same autoethnographic methodology I previously studied in my interviewees. I really appreciated the statement that it was “quite unlike anything I’ve read before.”
I like this original research . . .
