FRAMING phase Ania Lian 11.03.2014

PowerPoint Presentation:

Research questions should: Address the gap between “what is” and “what should be”? Address implications for future directions in relation to the area of inquiry and its aim. Address project’s limitations in relation to its design and conceptual and other boundaries. Framing Phase – a Map

PowerPoint Presentation:

When you look at the Question 1 in the Video, the first example says: In cultural approaches to the study of texts, writing is not just “writing”. These studies approach writing as intentions (purposes) on which authors draw to elicit social, cultural, and symbolic forms of capital So WHAT SHOULD BE here is identified theoretically. Writing as eliciting social, cultural, and symbolic forms of capital. This is informed by approaches to text analysis and genre developed by people like prof. Anne F readman from University of Melbourne and draws on forms of value identified by Bourdieu. So the area of inquiry is theoretically framed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In the same Question, “WHAT IS” makes a reference to the need for a CALL applications enabling students to analyse their own writing. In this project I will investigate how these various forms of capital are engaged in Thai and English academic texts in order to understand better ways in which the potential similarities and differences in their use can assist Thai ESL teachers in developing adequate digital (CALL) support resources.   So in your proposal, when you describe “WHAT IS ”, you need to argue for the need for your research. For example, in the writing project above, the researcher should make a case that something is missing in current approaches to teaching academic writing. This means, the researcher needs to make references to readings. Now, the context of your inquiry is theoretically framed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In the same Question, “ACHIEVEMENT” was framed as In this project I will investigate how these various forms of capital are engaged in Thai and English academic texts in order to understand better ways in which the potential similarities and differences in their use can assist Thai ESL teachers in developing adequate digital (CALL) support resources.   So in your proposal, when you describe “WHAT WILL BE ACHIEVED”, you need to illustrate why you think your approach is of value. For example, in the writing project above, the researcher should make a case that this new approach may add some more useful information. Again, this has to be argued, not just talked about. This means, the researcher needs to make references to readings. Now, the aim of your inquiry is theoretically framed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In the same Question, “OBJECT of STUDY” was framed as: In this project I will investigate how these various forms of capital are engaged in Thai and English academic texts  in order to understand better ways in which the potential similarities and differences in their use can assist Thai ESL teachers in developing adequate digital (CALL) support resources.  So in your proposal, when you describe “WHAT WILL BE INVESTIGATED”, you need to engage the “WHAT SHOULD BE” (the area of your inquiry) with the ACHIEVEMENT step. Specify the exact aspect that you will focus on. In the example above, the researcher will look at similarities and differences. Once you decide, the object of your inquiry will be theoretically framed.

http:// youtu.be/o1Kph9R6y1E?t=1h5m40s In this clip, at the designated point on the timeline, the monk helps us understand what knowledge is: an instrument. And he warns that if you take the instrument for reality (truth), you stop the inquiry; you are then stuck in a dogma. He also makes the point that as a result, the inquiry really always is about ourselves. So in this sense, it has nothing to do with rockets, education, or any other subject. They are but an avenue for this learning, not the subject.
