Already in week 2 and preparing my first milestone- the Research Plan. The Research Plan includes milestone dates and deadlines, training I'm intending to undertake, a supervisor- student role perspectives survey, plans to publish, terms of agreement and schedule of meetings. I also included a project overview on a Gantt chart, a year long project planner and my intended research design in a flow chart.This Research Plan will form part of my progress report required bi- annually.
My first milestone should be complete in the next two weeks. Then I look to the next item on the agenda- the Literature Review.
