- I'm seeing things begin to organise themselves a little better and have managed to start condensing and refining certain sections of my critical review.
- I am still finding the format of the analysis of findings section is being problematic, although not because the data isn't useful or interesting - far from it - but because everything overlaps with everything else.
- I'm also aware that my analysis is "quote heavy," which is something that I anticipated but that also makes it very wordy. I had considered using different colours for diary entries and interview quotes to not only break up the large amounts of text but to clearly separate data from analysis, however I am not sure whether this will make it look like a Year 3 homework assignment rather than a Level 6 document! Definitely more thought needed...
- I have yet to start the final section of the written document but am planning to spend next week looking in more detail at things that I could, or should, include
- The professional artifact is giving me a bit of a headache, although, after posting a blog to this effect, I received some really helpful feedback and comments from Betty Wells and Mimi Whitney (see blog post, Professional Arrrrrrrghtifact).
- Finally I have realised by writing these little updates (this is the fourth) I not only give myself a reality check on what I have done but allow myself to see more clearly what I have left to do. It also encourages me to look back to the source of my inquiry to see whether I am still following the path I have laid out or whether I have deviated too far from it.
I really can't believe how close we are to the end of things! I don't mean in inquiring or developing professional practice, of course, as this will long carry on into the future, but in our BAPP journey. It's certainly been something I will never forget.
