The doing (creative) scholarly writing workshop today lined up what key outcome participants in the workshops will create for this year. We then developed project time lines to make clear what the steps are that need to be done to make this happen, and when they will need to be done by. This is not writ in stone. It is good for new researchers to do as it makes visible how much is needed to be done, when it can be done, and so break down what can appear large and complex into something made up of quite small steps. We are also going to read Francesca’s “How the How” and the first chapter of Law, John. After Method: Mess in Social Science Research. London: Routledge, 2004 was also recommended.
We are thinking about making them fortnightly to give some impetus to things, and for the next workshop everyone should have a) made a start on their outcome, b) have completed their project timeline so we can see how we are ‘travelling’, and c) have a collection of questions, concerns, queries that may have arisen.
