RAISE VIABLE RESEARCH QUESTIONS
Once you have written a draft Literature Review using the Confetti Way, you will need to find a viable research question to launch yourself into the next and final part of writing the Research Proposal – the Method Plan. On your own, try to find some answers to the following brainstorm question prompts.
What kinds of gaps, limitations or disagreements did you note as you were writing up the Literature Review?
Generate at least ten research questions openly and freely. Do not overthink; list questions as they come to mind. Think about the gaps/limitations/disagreements identified above and about the who, what, where, when, and how aspects. Highlight a few of the more promising and discipline-related questions from that open-ended list. Questions that hold the most promise are ones that have no known and ready response.
Revise one or two of the more promising questions and show the results here:
Get together with your discipline fellows and share your revised questions with them. Discuss how these questions relate to the literature from the discipline. Roughly write down at least three of the more well-liked questions that emerge in the discussions:
Get ready to share these well-liked questions in a multidisciplinary panel session.
