Depending on the scope of how much you'd like to accomplish, here is what I think we could do together in 10 sessions. I'm using a YouTube channel as an example, which we could also apply to blogging and podcasting. YouTube Channel: -identify channels that you look up and why they are successful -identify resources you'll need to ensure the success and follow-through of this project, such as tools to learn how to edit videos, video editing programs, recording tools -brainstorm the direction of the channel and the target audience for your content -marketing strategies, such as where you can promote your channel -a plan for the content of each video for a season or two -(if you plan on having guests on your channel), send out invites and set up a time with them -shoot/edit/publish the videos
Here is what working on a research project with me would look like from start to finish at a graduate level. -discuss what your career goals are and identify how the research project can help you -identify your interests, questions that you would like answered through research -literature review: you'll search for the studies that have already been conducted and what they have found (writing up a literature review is an accomplishment of its own and we can present it or publish it) -identify the gap in the literature and solidify your research questions -design the study to answer your research questions: are the questions better answered in a quantitative (e.g., surveys) or qualitative (e.g., interviews) method? -recruit for participants -analyze the data and finalize the results -write out discussion: using the results of the study, what are the real-world implications? -submit study to a conference and/or journal to publish. Remember this is typically what graduate students do. We can work together to build a project that is more appropriate for you and your interests. I want to make sure you get the experience you're looking for!
