I was wondering if after all these years
You’d like to meet,
to go over
If you had asked me a year ago I would have not believed that I would be staring at the data, that wildly exciting, challenging, heart searing data and wanting to meet.
Here is the thing. Research is mostly messy. I have been balancing hundreds of new ideas daily, great input from my online Professional Learning Network (PLN), I have found new ways of thinking and have been reading some great new literature that is helping me make sense of everything.
But I need to meet the data and say HELLO. Going over the data and making connections, identifying themes, coding, memos, links….ahh well that there my friend is a messy thing. I am like a deer caught in headlights. Stunned. Paralyzed. Scared.
So I am …meeting with my data, making friends, going over it all. Slowly.
Debating whether I use some software to support that meeting, a segue between the raw data and my brain.
I would love to hear your encounter with data and that messy place of research.
So, as Adele says so well……HELLO…..I am hoping to tell you more from the other side.
