Dissertation Research

INTRODUCTION

Recall that in the Unit 1 IP, you described your research topic ideas and drafted your problem, purpose, and question (the Trio). Then at Symposium I, you had the opportunity to further develop and refine the topic and Trio statements. Now you need to document your work from Symposium and discuss how and why you made those modifications.

QUESTION

Your paper should include the following:State your original research ideas related to your topic and why you are interested in this topic.
