Today's session is about writing the introduction / chapter 1. This is the most important chapter as most examiners will first read this chapter after reading through the abstract. This chapter should be short but catchy enough to attract examiners to read through the whole thesis.
The introductory chapter should cover:
- why particular topic is researched
- context and scope of the study
- significance of the study
- where research is being conducted and why
- research aims and objectives
-you could also include definition of terms in your introductory chapter.
A suggested outline of the introductory chapter :
- the research problem
- research objectives
- conceptual framework
- research approach
- structure of the thesis.
So, good luck kepada yg sedang menulis. As for me, I think I need to revisit my Chapter 1 coz I don't think it is catchy enough to the readers/examiners. Tengok...what have I written earlier...the never ending story/journey.....
