Podcast Episode 14: Is the Lit Review a Journey? With Aurélie Gandour
Is the Lit Review a Journey?
So is the lit review a journey? The idea for this episode came from a post by Pat Thomson (who has also been on the podcast). She is always challenging the way we think about academic processes using metaphors and Aurélie saw many parallels between what Pat was saying about the PhD and the Literature Review. There are some great lessons to be learned from the way we think about the Lit Review and we discuss these in today's episode.
