1.The first new trick I learned from Chapter 14, Researching in Technical Workplaces, is how to make a map to discover the boundaries of the research. Now, I know how to start with my broad picture and break it off into different sections. Then I can break the sections into specific examples, places, or concepts. Then, after I conduct the research I will have a variety of information to use in my writing. Second, I learned about formulating a hypothesis. Normally, when I start research I just start reading. I had heard of people using questions and hypotheses, but I never really knew why. Now I understand the point of a hypothesis. It will keep the research being done focused on the big picture. If the information I find doesn’t help answer the question I’m asking, then I know either the information is irrelevant or I am asking the wrong question. It will guide research and save time. Third, I realized that there are more sources to find information than I was thinking of. I always look for websites, journal articles, newspapers, and different publications, but I had never thought of using videos, radio, television, or anything along those lines before. Also, I noticed that I have never used primary research in any of the previous papers I’ve written. I never thought about asking those around me to help get answers. Finally, I learned about triangulation. Triangulation refers to the act of comparing information from the different sources I have collected and seeing if any information matches up. I should find information from electronic sources, empirical sources, and print sources to do this process. If these diverse sources have similar information that agrees with each other, then I can be more confident in the source that I have. If these sources don’t match up or one contradicts the other sources, I can be confident that this is not a reliable source. Overall, triangulation can help make sure I use different sources, and makes sure I am using reliable information.

2.My first takeaway from the chapter was the first step in the research process, “Define Your Research Subject”. This stuck out to me because to me it is the most important step in the process. Without clearly identifying what your subject is, you won’t have the opportunity to lay out what you already know about the subject and you also won’t know what new topics to look for. My next takeaway from the chapter was the fourth step in the process, “Collect Evidence Through Sources”. This part of the chapter stuck out to me because I have always found it important to reach out to the non typical sources outside of sources like websites and online research databases. By doing this you are opened up to an entire new section of resources that others don’t even bother to look at. My third takeaway from the chapter was the sixth step in the research process, “Take Careful Notes”. This step stuck out to me because it is never a bad time to be organized in anything you do, but it can be especially useful when collecting information. The reason taking notes and being organized helps, as stated in the chapter is because you get so much information it is necessary to be able to determine what pieces of that information is more important than the other pieces.

Triangulation is how you know whether or not you are collecting your evidence from a variety of sources and will allow you to compare all of your sources so you know what evidence is credible, and what evidence isn’t. For my proposal it means finding sources from all three platforms: electronic, print, and empirical, finding the similar evidence, and using it.

3.After reading chapter 14 and learning about the appropriate measures of research in the workplace I have come away with a few takeaways. The first is that when going through the research process you must be aware of the scope of your research topic. The key thing here to note is that your subject can’t be too broad. Another takeaway I’ve learned from chapter 14 is that you should categorize your notes into two sections: need to know information and want to tell information. Need to know information is the info which you have determined is imperative for the readers to take action or make a decision. Want to tell information is the info that you think is helpful, but not necessary for them to act or make a decision. Another takeaway I have come away with is that it’s helpful to formulate a research question and hypothesis when researching in the workplace. One reason why you should create a research question and hypothesis is because it helps guide your research. The last takeaway that I have come away with from chapter 14 is determining the biasedness of your source. You never want your sources to lean heavily towards one conclusion, so it’s imperative to check to see if the author has bias towards that subject.

Triangulating is the process of comparing your sources to determine if they are reliable. The sources that are going to be the most reliable are the ones in which you see similar facts across all sides of the research triangle. The research triangle consists of electronic sources, empirical sources, and print sources. For this proposal triangulation means that for the evidence I have chosen to be reliable, it must be found in electronic sources, empirical sources, and print sources.
