Qxd 26 1/31/2006 7:03 PM Page 26 ACHIEVING YOUR DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION Rudestam and Newton (1992) draw upon a metaphor of film-making in their discussion of doing a literature review. They note that in film-making there are ‘long shots’, ‘medium shots’ and ‘close-ups’. For example, an EdD thesis researching how post-16 teaching impacts on what Initial Teacher Training (ITT) mentors do in their training role with student teachers deliberately divided the literature review into three themes, paralleling its three chapters of data analysis.

I must capture the VT experience and my data gathering and analysis will revolve around this quest.
