'Using social media as a doctoral researcher'

 

#phdchat tweet log - 2nd January 2013

 

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:31:56) - Welcome to #phdchat - the topic for tonight is ''using social media as a doctoral researcher' #phd #higherd (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:33:24) - @Comprof1 Hi Virginia, thanks for advice. I think we can see the topic for today's chat in action right now #phdchat. (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:33:30) - @lizith ~ have you handed in Liz? - what a milestone to have reached. I'm still editing & finishing off final chapter (still!!) :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:33:53) - @NSRiazat Can you clarify what you mean by that? Do you mean using it in the research process? #phdchat Or supporting the research dr. (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:34:16) - HOw do we define 'social media' and how do people use social media to develop either their thesis or themselves as a researcher? #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 19:34:36) - 1 month, 5 days til defense (unless I can't get a scheduling commitment by Monday from one last cmte member). #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:34:46) - @NSRiazat will hand in on Friday - being printed and soft bound currently :) It sort of suddenly came together - deadline helped! #phdchat (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 19:34:51) - @NSRiazat My drawing for the debat "using social media as a doctoral researcher" :p http://t.co/XiCQxIEu #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:34:56) - @annatatton1 Often I misunderstood reason for comment. Also sometimes he'd say it off hand then forget it. #phdchat (original tweet)

@KAMWright (02/01/13 19:34:58) - Important points on reality of #gradlife and the #PhD in this piece http://t.co/xkS3Se3E via @janniaragon #PhDChat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:35:21) - @Comprof1 ~ Hi Virginia - how people use social media to develop both thesis and/or themselves are a researcher. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:35:25) - @annatatton1 Try to figure out where the question came from. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:36:40) - @PhDelirium_net ~ oops - forgot to message you tonight's topic. Blaming being 'brain-numb' from editing chapter for my remiss. :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:37:09) - @lizith @NSRiazat So glad ours was the first semester w/ total online submission. It really was much less work. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:38:07) - Personally have benefited from reading blogs written by other researchers in firled - especially http://t.co/QYhI0rti. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:38:10) - @NSRiazat One thing I found useful was the social support thru the process. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:38:14) - @Comprof1 online submission would be nice, but not option where I am :( #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctorJLB (02/01/13 19:38:22) - @lizith Yay! #phdchat good luck! (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:38:43) - @NSRiazat - originally started blogging to share bits of my writing and get informal feedback/comments. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:39:21) - @NSRiazat Also, SM has helped me in identifying/maintaining resources. #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 19:39:41) - @NSRiazat Hoping to finish my first blog tonight - about how distracting Social Media is to a Part-time PhD student #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:39:48) - @Comprof1 Great advice Virginia, thanks very much. Re #phdchat topic of social media I'm afraid I'm a bit of a dinosaur. Prefer face 2 face (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:40:08) - @lizith ~ well done - very proud of you. :-) It must feel quite an achievement to see your work bound. :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:41:01) - I've used my blog in different ways - initially place for ideas & notes - more recently sharing the roller coaster ride! #phdchat (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 19:41:07) - @NSRiazat An other cartoon on the use of internet which can save the PhD student's life :p http://t.co/iEFMF0m9 #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:41:12) - @philipmurraycit ~ good point about distraction. Number of times people have told me to 'get off Twitter' and finish thesis. :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 19:41:16) - "How the network works"...using Twitter for connecting with other academics http://t.co/GHi9AT49 #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:41:35) - @philipmurraycit @NSRiazat On the other hand, I was doing Phd in vacuum as PT. SM gave me a support system #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:42:24) - one of good things has been the blog comments - the encouragement of others is one of things that has got me through #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:42:33) - @philipmurraycit @NSRiazat congratulations on blogging. I must admit it feels like great support on here #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:42:39) - @qui_oui - without social media would not have had opportunity to network with so many researchers/academics outside of the Uk #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:43:44) - @annatatton1 ~ focus on a small section at the time. Looking and thinking in 'whole thesis terms' all the time can be overwhelming. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:43:53) - @NSRiazat stupidly proud to have got this far - but still got the final furlong of viva, etc, ahead so trying not be too excited! #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 19:43:57) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat I'm in that Vacuum also, but SM takes me to irrelevant places! See the potential as support system though #phdchat (original tweet)

@erica_r_e_lewis (02/01/13 19:44:08) - #phdchat 1 term in social media has been vital, whether Facebook or twitter but for quite different purposes (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 19:44:28) - social media is great to exchange with people all around the word + to know the news, but the - is sometime : procrastination ;p #phdchat (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 19:44:33) - #PhDchat Technology round-up, using http://t.co/HCak0har and Buzzdata: http://t.co/LEMBErjN (original tweet)

@erinlpc (02/01/13 19:44:51) - @philipmurraycit definitely distracting. I use it as a mental break or reward. All gadgets are silenced & face down for focus time #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:45:19) - @NSRiazat @qui_oui My topic was interdiscip w/ most related research outside of US. Able to connect to other ideas through blog #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:45:43) - @annatatton1 @philipmurraycit ~ #phdchat is a supportive community...we all go through similar things when doing a PhD. :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:46:02) - let's not forget #phdchat is social networking - been brilliant network & I've also found people working in same area through Twitter (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:46:34) - @NSRiazat Thanks Nasima. How do you keep motivated? #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (02/01/13 19:46:50) - unfortunate but i cant stay for this topic, heres my current ramblings on social media & doctoral research http://t.co/Z3fZVCUX #phdchat (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 19:46:55) - #PhDchat apologies for repeat posting--"What the tweet?" social media for grad students http://t.co/hD1E81Pv (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:46:55) - #phdchat - has anyone 'attended' any online conferences? #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 19:47:02) - @Comprof1 @lizith @nsriazat Ours is electronic submission as well. Luckily all my formatting appears in order. #phdchat (original tweet)

@erinlpc (02/01/13 19:47:03) - Twitter is the only sm channel I use for research related activities. More networking & finding articles than anything else #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 19:47:20) - @erinlpc wish I had your discipline! SM is the equivalent of shiny things to a Magpie for me! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:47:46) - @philipmurraycit @NSRiazat I came to #phdchat thru @andycoverdale who followed my blog, then I followed his, then found others incl #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:47:49) - @annatatton1 ~ it comes and goes. 2nd year was a huge challenge for me and the 'phd blues' hit in a big way. Now back on track. :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 19:47:58) - Sorry, coffee shop router went down. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:48:15) - @annatatton1 - I work full time and work on thesis on a part time basis. Setting deadlines and mini-tasks helps. #phdchat (original tweet)

@erica_r_e_lewis (02/01/13 19:48:27) - @lizith when did you start blogging about your research? I'm still not sure I know anything to share. #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 19:48:51) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat @andycoverdale I must admit I came to #phdchat through twitter myself - am finding it very useful (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:48:56) - @NSRiazat I've been to a few including JISC & some in Second Life - also occasionally picked up sessions being webcast from others #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:49:09) - @annatatton1 - currently am editing chapter 2 and have a daily aim to edit and complete as least 1 sub-section every day minimum. #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 19:49:37) - Saw the topic, but have no idea where the conversation has elapsed... #phdchat (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 19:50:06) - and what do you think about the MOOC? #phdchat (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 19:50:07) - #PhDchat--a post on academic blogging and some of the debates about it: http://t.co/Mr97HinL (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:50:14) - @philipmurraycit @Comprof1 @NSRiazat @andycoverdale I came to #phdchat through the thesis http://t.co/avp698e6 (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:50:25) - @NSRiazat @annatatton1 I think we all have ups & downs - most of my downs recorded in my blog http://t.co/MchmHLzg #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:50:56) - @Comprof1 ~ good point about social media identifying resources. I found lots of search engines/blogs through #phdchat (original tweet)

@erinlpc (02/01/13 19:51:46) - @philipmurraycit oh, I fail often. But I shoot for using it as a break or reward. When its crunch time, Im pretty successful #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:51:51) - @erica_r_e_lewis more or less week one - but blog has been more process than abt research itself - sharing has been more f-t-f #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:52:02) - @erica_r_e_lewis @lizith You don't need to "know" anything. Use it to bounce around ideas (see my blog http://t.co/beFxqQIo ) #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 19:52:12) - @NSRiazat @Comprof1 I think I have finally *got* twitter - today - thanks to #phdchat (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 19:52:29) - @qui_oui mhm I have already read this article, and I have drawned a phd cartoon on this subject:D http://t.co/iEFMF0m9 #PHDCHAT (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:53:25) - @lizith ~ I'll be pleased to have finished editing Chapter 1 and 2 by weekend - have to change things every time I read through :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:53:47) - @NSRiazat Do you use any of the info on blogs for your thesis? still not sure it's accepted, but some good stuff out there #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:53:55) - There's also possibility of using social media in research process - I used a wiki to get comments on some of my work #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:54:46) - @NSRiazat part of prob is you can always improve - that is why you have to draw a line, knowing not perfect #phdchat (original tweet)

@BioInFocus (02/01/13 19:55:01) - @qui_oui Not sure if I've shared my take on Twitter for Scientists with you before, but might be of interest http://t.co/OLCKtH27 #PhDChat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:55:13) - @NSRiazat @lizith And then you loose your focus? I hate the beginning of my chapt b/c read them so much #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:55:48) - @lizith @annatatton1 - don't thinkthere is a PhD student who has not had downs along the way. It's a rollercoaster of a journey.:) #phdchat (original tweet)

@erica_r_e_lewis (02/01/13 19:56:21) - Thanks @Comprof1 I'll have a look at your blog & see if inspiration/courage strike @lizith #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 19:56:48) - @NSRiazat @lizith @annatatton1 A lot of this for me has been social comparison. Seeing what/how others are doing. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:56:56) - @annatatton1 ~ excellent - hope you will visit #phdchat throughout the week. It runs 24/7 informally. #phdchat (original tweet)

@erica_r_e_lewis (02/01/13 19:57:20) - @lizith interesting - even talking about the process seems somewhat scarey #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 19:57:37) - @erica_r_e_lewis @lizith search for the label "dissertation" #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:57:41) - @Comprof1 ~ no just published some of my early writing and few bits about #phdchat. Prefer to write thesis at moment. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:58:12) - @Comprof1 ~ have always been warned to be careful about publishing in blogs before publishing thesis. Thoughts anyone? #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 19:59:01) - @erica_r_e_lewis just take a look at some of the comments on my blog though & how it helps to hear others thoughts & encouragement #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 19:59:13) - @NSRiazat @Comprof1 I suppose it depends on whether you are blogging your research V's about your research #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 19:59:49) - @lizith ~ drawing line under 1 & 2 this weekend - chapter 3 & 4 written in draft form and just need editing and then 5 to do. #phdchat (original tweet)

@JaneDavis13 (02/01/13 20:00:00) - @lizith @NSRiazat very true #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:00:04) - @NSRiazat Maybe if you have a well formed idea might want to wait. But not for emerging ideas. #phdchat (original tweet)

@d_little_b (02/01/13 20:00:30) - @PhDelirium_net true story - even LinkedIn, which is supposedly a "grown-ups" social network, is a time killer! #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:00:42) - @lizith ~ best laid plans never work during PhD - the PhD goes in its own direction no matter how much you plan. #phdchat (original tweet)

@d_little_b (02/01/13 20:01:15) - @PhDelirium_net tried a couple of courses on Coursera, never completed and didn't quite take advantage of the "M" (massive) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:01:20) - @lizith @erica_r_e_lewis How did you get people to comment. I never could get people to comment. But I did get SM Citations #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 20:01:29) - @NSRiazat #phdchat Yes will come back. My blog might help others struggling: http://t.co/Wx6YBoFU (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:02:20) - @NSRiazat @lizith that's great. You're really moving along! #phdchat (original tweet)

@JackieKirkham (02/01/13 20:02:23) - @ChloeZadeh this was my experience: http://t.co/suhtKZFe best tip: take off watch. #viva #phdchat #ecrchat (original tweet)

@PsyPAG (02/01/13 20:02:24) - How the network works"...using #Twitter for connecting with other #academics http://t.co/J4a8k7tD #phdchat via @NSRiazat @qui_oui (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:03:46) - Anyone use anything like storify or prezi to present research findings/develop thoughts ideas? #phdchat (original tweet)

@PsyPAG (02/01/13 20:03:55) - Some thoughts from @ai1sa on #socialmedia and doctoral research: http://t.co/n5rDLezq #PhDchat (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 20:04:52) - . @PhDelirium_net this made me laugh http://t.co/vFrRqyVN ...really. I'm embarrassed to admit how true to life this is... #PhDchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (02/01/13 20:05:43) - #phdchat - social networking is one of the many genres phd students need to master, but at first the notion of 'networking' needs critiquing (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 20:06:03) - @PhDelirium_net oops not sure if that link worked. Anyway--funny #PhDchat cartoons, everyone: http://t.co/ydPL9AmS (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 20:07:16) - My first Blog: Information Detox for the Part-Time PhD Student http://t.co/OHLVxosB via @philipmurraycit #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:07:22) - @NSRiazat http://t.co/TJcPs4cg I tried, but it wasn't really useful. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:07:33) - Have a good network on Twitter via #phdchat and know and trust links to be filtered and valuable information. #phdchat (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 20:08:13) - @NSRiazat prezy ? I don t like it, it s too wave/move, it make my sick lol:-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:08:48) - Social media - such as #phdchat and blogging has saved me a lot of time and connected my research to the real world #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (02/01/13 20:09:33) - I use it to find new people/researchers in other fields, but also to share links with students, "expose" a little of myself. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:10:16) - Without social media connections I wouldnt have been able to be in a research community like someone campus-based. #phdchat (original tweet)

@simon_reader (02/01/13 20:10:57) - @qui_oui Thanks for "What the tweet?" - taught me how #phdchat works, and at the right moment! (original tweet)

@lecmsr (02/01/13 20:11:01) - @DrSustainable Many of the worst managed and worst value for money projects I have seem have been very big #ecrchat #acwri #phdchat #ref2014 (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 20:11:19) - @NSRiazat I've really enjoyed being a relatively passive observer of #phdchat - hope to get more involved inthe new year #phdresolutions (original tweet)

@qui_oui (02/01/13 20:12:07) - @NSRiazat I use both of those things, mostly Prezi. I like that I can share Prezi afterwards (though some people hate it!) #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:12:17) - @philipmurraycit ~ yes do - it's a valuable community which runs 24/7 #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 20:12:28) - @NSRiazat Do you think your involvement in social media has prevented you from going into the 'valley of shit' or 'pit of despair'? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:13:20) - Anyone want to share thoughts about using bookmarking - Delicious, Diigo, BibSonomy etc...#phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:13:41) - @qui_oui @NSRiazat I'd like to use it more, but I need time to play around w/ it. But didn't have time w/ thesis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrSustainable (02/01/13 20:13:44) - @lecmsr Yeah. In this case size really does not matter :/ #ecrchat #acwri #phdchat #ref2014 (original tweet)

@lizith (02/01/13 20:14:05) - @annatatton1 @nsriazat didn't stop me - but did mean I had lots of folk around to help pull me out :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (02/01/13 20:15:07) - @annatatton1 @NSRiazat really helped when I had a bad session w/ advisor. My family was supportive but couldn't understand like #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:15:13) - @annatatton1 - having a support network and knowing others are working through same issues definitely helps. #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (02/01/13 20:15:40) - #social media is turning academics more in Isaiah Berlin's Fox than his hedghogs #phdchat #edtech #phd (original tweet)

@PhDelirium_net (02/01/13 20:16:06) - @NSRiazat i don t use it, if i see an interested link i tweet it or put it on endnote #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:16:34) - @annatatton1 ~ in year 2 I needed a break away from thesis and research to refocus and come back to it stronger. #phdchat (original tweet)

@philipmurraycit (02/01/13 20:16:59) - @Comprof1 @annatatton1 @NSRiazat I think that's why it's most important, especially if you dont have other researchers around you #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:18:02) - @Comprof1 @annatatton1 @lizith - agree - you have to do a PhD to understand what it's really like - the highs and lows. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lindalevitt (02/01/13 20:18:14) - @NSRiazat I use Pocket a lot. Have dabbled in Evernote but I can't get comfortable. Seems a good thing tho. #phdchat (original tweet)

@simon_reader (02/01/13 20:19:08) - I find contemporary social media sheds light on notebooks and notation practices from earlier periods (my diss. topic) #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (02/01/13 20:19:12) - @philipmurraycit @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Has research been done to show that #socialmedia #counselling is as effective as face2face? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (02/01/13 20:19:36) - @Comprof1 @lizith @annatatton1 - agree - #phdchat people just 'get it' :-) (original tweet)
