Original discussion question:
Identify one recent article,
book, or conference proceeding that inspires your research interest. The

questions. Upload it into the
What is the full APA reference
of the inspirational article, book, or conference presentation?
What is the problem it is
Why is this problem of interest
to the exercise science community?(Why should it be studied? Who will benefit
from the knowledge?)
What else needs to be learned
about this problem in order to solve it? (Where do the gaps in literature lie?)
What new research questions
come to mind? (If using an article, look for future research suggestions in the
Discussion section to help). Brainstorm several potential research questions
whose answers could fill in the gap identified above of what is not yet known.
(These may be potential RQs you are considering for your dissertation).
Select 1 of the RQs above and
write a short abstract of a study that COULD be designed to address the
research question. The abstract should include 1) the overall purpose of the
study and the research problem(s) you will investigate; 2) the basic design of
the study (including participant details and methods you are proposing to use)
3) details of your intervention (if applicable) 4)data you plan to collect and
