Ways to Study 6 Graduate Study Proposal

  1. 1. Ways to Study lecture 06Ways to a Graduate Study Proposal
  2. 2. Ideal contents of a design related Study Proposal 1. Object of study and its context 2. My study proposal 3. Accounts
  3. 3. 1. Object of study and its context 1.1. Object of my study 1.2. Probable future context: field of problems 1.3. Desired impacts of my study: field of aims 1.4. My designerly references: field of means 1.5. My portfolio and perspective: field of abilities
  4. 4. 2. My study proposal 2.1. Location and|or other future context factors 2.2. Motivation and|or program of requirements [PoD] 2.3. Intended results, contributions and planning
  5. 5. 3. Accounts 3.1. Meeting criteria for a study proposal 3.2. References 3.3. Key words
  6. 6. How to handle context
  7. 7. Explicit future context - protects your study against judgements with other suppositions about the future context - raises the debate about the robustness of your study in different future contexts - makes your study comparable to other studies in comparable contexts - raises a ‘field of problems’ instead of an isolated ‘problem statement’ by subtracting desirable futures from the probable ones
  8. 8. Explicit impacts within that context - indicate actors and specialists to join the team or take into account - imply a societal and personal relevance or fascination - imply a field of aims - imply actors willing to finance your study - could produce a program of requirements - before you have a precise study proposal !
  9. 9. Field of problems and aims - Problems: probable, but not desirable futures - Aims: desirable, but not probable futures probable field of problems design field of aims desirable
  10. 10. Limit your object of study by scalehttp://team.bk.tudelft.nlPublications 2004
  11. 11. Grain and impacts of your studyhttp://team.bk.tudelft.nlPublications 2004
  12. 12. Desired impacts of your studyhttp://team.bk.tudelft.nlPublications 2004
  13. 13. How to judge these impacts without future context?http://team.bk.tudelft.nlPublications 2004
  14. 14. Changing context changes impactshttp://team.bk.tudelft.nlPublications 2004
  15. 15. Ideal contents of a design related Study Proposal 1. Object of study and its context 2. My study proposal 3. Accounts
  16. 16. 1. Object of study and its context 1.1. Object of my study 1.2. Probable future context: field of problems 1.3. Desired impacts of my study: field of aims 1.4. My designerly references: field of means 1.5. My portfolio and perspective: field of abilities
  17. 17. 2. My study proposal 2.1. Location and|or other future context factors 2.2. Motivation and|or program of requirements [PoD] 2.3. Intended results, contributions and planning
  18. 18. 3. Accounts 3.1. Meeting criteria for a study proposal 3.2. References 3.3. Key words
  19. 19. Criteria for a study proposal A.Affinity with designing B.University width C.Concept formation and transferability D.Retrievability and accumulating capacity E.Methodical accountability and depth F.Ability to be criticized and to criticize G.Convergence and limitations
  20. 20. A Affinity with designing - Look for possibilities rather than probabilities - Use images where they can replace text - Describe these images with a professional eye as scientific documents - Show your ability to grasp fields of problems and aims into a spatial concept - Show your ability to take many actors into account
  21. 21. B University width Specify: - Supposed future managerial, cultural, economic, technological, ecological and spatial context – on different relevant levels of scale – In a perspective of time - Readable impacts (intended and not intended) - Actors
  22. 22. C Concept formation and transferability - Read Chapter 4, 42, 43 and 44 of Ways to Study - Use key words - Try to define them - Make self-evident conditional and causal connections explicit - Avoid scale falsification and overlap - Differentiate between desirable, possible and probable concepts - Use images - Choose themes for legends
  23. 23. D Retrievability and accumulating capacity - Read Ways chapter 5 - Referring to other authors - Making your own bibliography - Making your own publication retrievable - By (syntactic) key words - By your own website
  24. 24. E Methodical accountability and depth - Read Ways to study - What kind of methods do you refuse - What kind of methods do you accept - How would you like to use them?
  25. 25. F Ability to be criticized and to criticize - Do not hide your weakness - Do not use self-evident statements but - Bold ones - Doubt existing statements
  26. 26. G Convergence and limitations - How long are you going to diverge - When are you going to converge? - Which relation has the object to the University study portfolio?
  27. 27. Criteria for a study proposal A.Affinity with designing B.University width C.Concept formation and transferability D.Retrievability and accumulating capacity E.Methodical accountability and depth F.Ability to be criticized and to criticize G.Convergence and limitations
