Becoming Dr Doc
My supervisor recently suggested that I think about starting a blog as a way to document ideas about my PhD study. The idea resonated with my own thinking, as I had been contemplating this for a while, (My partner is an avid blogger on the craft scene, and so I am familiar with the vagaries of blogging) but I felt that I needed a theme or some purpose in order to begin.
So I let it rattle around in my brain and today, the title came to me, and I have dived into the big blogging pond. (I also thought it might be a good place to rant and rave to no one in particular about the trials and tribulations I am told will ensue from this undertaking.)
I am roughly 2 months into a part time PhD looking at the evaluation of PROCESS in community music therapy and community cultural development. It sounds complicated I know and part of what I will be discovering over the next 6 or 7 years is what is really important to me about this topic, and how to describe it in 25 words or less!
For now, I have begun by looking at the different and yet similar fields of Community Music therapy and Community Cultural Development. I am looking at areas of intersection and diversity in order to say whether my planned evaluation tools can be used in both fields. Well that's it for now. Let's see how things progress towards me Becoming Dr Doc!
