One of the first and possibly most difficult tasks that a doctoral student undertakes is forming a research topic/question. In this week’s discussion (and throughout the course), you will develop a research question related to the readings for the week. Feel free to align the topic with your research area of interest.
Write a 275-word response to the following:
Using one of the topics covered in this week’s readings, frame a research question to get feedback from your faculty member and peers. Then in a few sentences, provide supportive content for the background of the problem, propose a problem statement, and then explain why the topic interests you. Create a new research question—one you have not posed in previous weeks.
