Developing a concept map

Why haven’t I posted so much recently. There are two answers to this question. One is that my teaching load is at its peak and time has got squeezed for a few weeks. The other is that perhaps things are starting to clarify and maybe beg for some more extended writing. Is it time to start thinking about structure of the thesis – or at least the preliminary chapters?

So after a couple of months of reading where am I? Have I been able to refine my concepts and approach any? Does my research still make the same sense to the person the pub? I acknowledge the lack of reading on personal constructs but, that aside, what I have read seems to be ready for some meta reflection and organisation. Mind you that might just be procrastination. But i think I need to dig out my ‘How to write your thesis’ books.

One thing that has happened is that this blog has been hit by people alighting from searh engines. The software (WordPress) keeps a tally of what they typed in to the search to reach the blog. This list makes for itneresting reading and may help infrom the structure. Is this some sort of concept list collection tool?

Terms typed into search engines to reach this blog (Dec and Jan, most frequent at the top – although most frequent is very small, the maximum is seven occurrences for any term):
