THIS IS THE ACTUAL POST YOU WILL BE RESPONDING TO
You have officially arrived at the base of your mountain. You suspect there is relevance and meaning in doing this climb. The mission that you have accepted is to climb the mountain. You have discovered the mountain blocks something positive for a community that will improve or enhance the community’s quality of life. You create a plan to start and finish your mission. You must determine if the challenge is worth the effort to climb: why or why not. As you begin your ascent, you meet others who have made the journey and had rest stops along the way. You decide to record and keep track of your discourse with these individuals and your discoveries on their journey about the climb. You may want to leave a legacy, footprint, a roadmap for others to use and follow should someone else decide to do what you are doing.
The above statement is a very informal version of a platform for research.
The parts of the initial research composition are presented to you in the titles and videos shared.
Succinctly, we consider a method (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods) to define our strategy for mountain climbing (Chalmers & Cowdell, 2021). Our methodology is supported by what theory or prospectus we use to explain why we chose a particular method (Creswell & Creswell,2018). Our design presents the content or mapping of how we work towards reaching our goal, even if we consider more than one way to construct the map (Park, Yi, and Jang, 2021). Along the way, curiosity drives questions we ask to find answers (Aslam & Emmanuel, 2010).
For many , this process is familiar and conventional. However, for some , the journey is new and intimidating. Take heart. You are not alone!
