Writing a Discussion for Dissertation
  • Discussion section of any dissertation is one of
    the most important parts. It provides readers
    with crucial information about the dissertation
    problem and
  • Provides explanation and interpretation of the
    findings to readers
  • Provides answers to the questions of the study
  • Provides proof that used approach is relevant
  • Provides critical evaluation of conducted
    research.

3
How to Begin
  • Begin your discussion section with the most
    important findings of your research.
  • Then be sure to connect your work to other
    studies.
  • Perhaps there were some that inspired you the
    most and motivated to take a certain approach?

4
How to Begin
  • Remember that the main purpose of your discussion
    is not to prove, but to discover.
  • In other words, discussion is a chance to explain
    the meaning of the results you discovered.
  • Think about your reader first.

5
Expressing Personal Thoughts
  • Professional writers say the discussion is the
    part where authors can express their thoughts to
    readers.
  • The key to writing a successful discussion is
    critical evaluation.

6
Expressing Personal Thoughts
  • This means that the author does not just describe
    the results of the research but also explain
    their meaning.
  • And another thing you dont just explain them,
    but make them clear and understandable to your
    audience.

7
Expressing Personal Thoughts
  • Remember that no one else before you thought as
    hard about your topic.
  • You are the researcher that collected all the
    data, analyzed it and produced results.
  • So they will be clearer to you and not to your
    reader.

8
Objectivity is Crucial
  • THE HYPOTHESIS - STUDY - DATA - CONCLUSIONS
  • Do not jump into conclusions just yet. Keep in
    mind that you have to maintain the following
    connection in your dissertation

9
Discussion should not use your criticism of
others. When comparing and contrasting your
results, stay within the lines of objectivity.
Do not try to attack other researchers let alone
prove something to your audience.
10
Discussion is often considered as the largest
part of dissertation. Most writers make it more
understandable by dividing them into subsections.
11
Ask Yourself the Following Questions to Be Sure
Your Discussion is Done Properly
  • Did I provide summary of the study results?
  • Are my result not just described but interpreted?
  • Did I provide explanation on whether the results
    support or disprove the hypothesis?
  • Did I examine present results with the ones from
    previous studies on the topic?

12
Ask Yourself the Following Questions to Be Sure
Your Discussion is Done Properly
  • Did I provide explanation why my work is
    important?
  • Did I include limitations of my research?
  • Did I suggest improvements on the Problem?
  • Did I include possible directions for future
    studies on the Problem?
