Case Study 1: Media Climate Change Reporting and Environmental Disclosure Patterns in the low-cost 21 st C airline industry
Why relate to a theory base?
When to identify the theory framework (ideally)
Why only low-cost airlines?
What about cross-sector analysis?
Why not use interviews?
What ethical issues this would raise?
Group Feedback / Discussion (because collective intelligence matters)
Q: Why relate to a theory base?When to identify the theory framework (ideally) A: ASAP, i.e. do actually read in-depth the qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods course-recommended texts as it will save time at the ‘doing’ stage of research
Q: Why only low-cost airlines? What about cross-sector analysis? A: restricting the scope of the research increased its robustness and prevents the researcher from making unsubstantiated claims. While x-sector would ‘great’ , this was actually achievable
Q: Why not use interviews? What ethical issues this would raise? A: the data ‘was just there’; no need to create a new sets. Also interview have repercussions (business relations, political, public reputation etc) which the researcher might not have intend but still contributed to. To avoid for obvious reasons.
Case Study 1: Further useful (imho) considerations
‘ Turning a job into a research project’
The effect of guest lectures
Distinguishing access and the research topic
Narrowing the focus
Read Case Study 2 ahead
Do contribute and question during tutorials > more Q&As = better learning from tutorials > more time will be allocated
Materials WebCT hopefully will be updated, meanwhile: > http://www.slideshare.net/elrichonore
