So, my CP was approved on 17 Feb 11. That night I utilized the DP template to create my proposal and copied over the easy stuff such as my references, definitions of terms and the literature review.
I'm so glad I decided to utilize the schoold DP template. I didn't for the CP and the table of contents gave me grief every time I updated it.
Utilizing the school template for the DP has made this much easier. I recommend using templates to everyone.
I didn't do any work on it on Friday or Saturday except for re-working the timeline. I will have to take a 4th dissertation course, but they only charge for 1 credit. I am trying to get the DP ready to turn in by 7 Mar, the start of the second dissertation course.
On Sunday, I worked on the appendices for the DP. I created the informed consent form and the demographic template as well as the interview questions.
Today I will create the observation guide. As part of my dissertation I will be doing a multiple case study utilizing interviews, observations and blog analysis.
