'Better research - greater impact - developing your skills to become effective researcher'


#phdchat tweet log - 23rd January 2013


@NSRiazat (23/01/13 19:33:40) - Welcomes to #phdchat - topic for tonight is 'better research - greater impact - developing your skills to become effective researcher #phd (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (23/01/13 19:33:44) - @SueFolley I bet!! Absolutely brilliant news!!! Hope you are celebrating (even on a school night!) #phdchat (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 19:34:44) - @NSRiazat Just finished reading the first article on #phdchat paper http://t.co/GEZqKNEQ So wish I had read this 5 years ago (original tweet)

@SueFolley (23/01/13 19:35:28) - @EmmaBurnettx not yet but may have a tipple later - or may save for Friday night! :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 19:36:12) - @annatatton1 - how should 'impact' be measured? Some of the most important research findings have been stumbled across accidently #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:36:44) - @SueFolley @EmmaBurnettx With your daughter's snow man? #phdchat (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 19:36:57) - @NSRiazat Having been immersed in methodology stuff recently has certainly helped me clarify the issue of better research #phdchat (original tweet)

@Protohedgehog (23/01/13 19:37:27) - Drive-by comment - First, you have to figure out what 'impact' means. Then you can try and measure it. Then you can assess it. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:37:35) - @linguistics12 @annatatton1 Good question about impact. Sometimes wanting "impact" can cripple you. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:38:40) - @XarahC @NSRiazat How do you define "better research"? Sometimes our definition is diff than established. #phdchat (original tweet)

@SueFolley (23/01/13 19:38:46) - @Comprof1 @EmmaBurnettx lol - I think the snowman polished the bottle off - will have to start another one! #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 19:38:56) - @linguistics12 #phdchat I feel flattered to be asked Ibrar: I think it's how we communicate the findings to the public and action taken (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 19:39:04) - What skills do we need 2 become better researchers, 2 create impact? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (23/01/13 19:40:46) - How do we define a 'good' researcher? #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 19:41:00) - @Comprof1 @linguistics12 #phdchat How so? Can you give an example? (original tweet)

@Judiebbrell (23/01/13 19:41:32) - @NSRiazat #phdchat one that does more work than me! (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:41:58) - @LBA_OX12 Self awareness, knowng our preconceptions, building in triangulation are vital skills #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 19:42:34) - Isn't impact more than communicating? Can it be influencing or having some other kind of effect..? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 19:42:55) - @Comprof1 Yes, good ones..... #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 19:43:25) - aaah! i'm finally around for #phdchat again! \o/ what are we talking about today? *scrolls* (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:44:15) - @NSRiazat 5 parts to good researcher: ability to define problems, design research, collect relevant data ethically, analyze & comm #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 19:44:18) - @NSRiazat #phdchat Gd researcher: rigorous, self-critical, willing to take advice but knows when to just nod and smile, creative ... (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:45:01) - Just musing on this - are there 2 different skillsets - research (discovery) and dissemination/communication #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 19:46:14) - yes. RT @lizith: Just musing on this - are there 2 different skillsets - research (discovery) and dissemination/communication #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:46:37) - @SarahLaneCawte @NSRiazat Self critical vital. Willing to admit mistakes or others perceptions. #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 19:46:47) - i think my hangup about this whole research thing is not being sure whether i know enough to be doing it in the first place! #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:46:53) - @LBA_OX12 I agree - something about application rather than just informing. Should the good researcher have all the skills? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (23/01/13 19:47:06) - @bookworm_29 congratulations Claire! #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 19:47:20) - @annatatton1 - according to enlightenment traditions, purpose of education and research is primarily inquiry, creation and critique #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 19:47:28) - @LBA_OX12 #phdchat My research will have had an impact if others feel it leads them to question & critically reflect on their practice. (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (23/01/13 19:47:43) - Perseverance and ability to sustain this over the long haul. #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 19:47:46) - #phdchat what if we considered the impact of research to be demonstrated (in part) by how it was integrated into teaching? (original tweet)

@Judiebbrell (23/01/13 19:47:49) - @Comprof1 @SarahLaneCawte @NSRiazat #phdchat what happens if you are so self critical you can't move forward? (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:48:08) - @lizith Communiction includes engaging with others to get different perspectives/levels of understanding #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:48:26) - @AmandaMichelle I think that's a problem we all face - do I know enough? Can I do it properly? etc, etc. It's more than imposter #phdchat (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 19:48:43) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Should've written better 'researcher', just thinking about robust appr to research with ethical considerations #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 19:48:46) - Thinking of different definitions of impact in REF (UK) ..... #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:49:14) - @Comprof1 yes - there is communication with peers, but also communication beyond academy #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 19:49:20) - @AmandaMichelle Or thinking that ur topic &/or data aren't significant enough.... #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:50:03) - @_erica_lewis I'd feel better because my thesis has not really gone anywhere except Uni depository! But I do use it in my teaching #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:51:46) - #phdchat I know Phd requires contribution to knowledge, but anyone do research just b/c they're interested? All mine has been that basis (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 19:52:00) - Re impact in research - watch out for reductionist perspectives #phdchat (original tweet)

@srossmktg (23/01/13 19:52:12) - Hey all, what's the topic? #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 19:52:29) - @NSRiazat Esp if PT! Can be a very long-haul! Needs huge motivation & commitment.#phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 19:52:51) - @Comprof1 cool - how do you use it in your teaching? & would you like to see it considered as part of the impact of your research? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:53:06) - #phdchat Is impact really necessary to be successful researcher? Some most successful researchers rn't known until they die. (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 19:53:08) - @linguistics12 #phdchat Yes but is it also to move forward - via impact on society, community and the world? (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (23/01/13 19:54:30) - Does impact have to start at the end of the research process? Can it start earlier through work with interested parties? #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 19:54:38) - In educational research, most of us got into this business due to research beneficiaries anyway! ie an issue in the classroom #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 19:54:46) - @Comprof1 I think the two come together: you're fascinated & can't find an answer someone else provided - so you go find your own #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:54:49) - @_erica_lewis My teaching is experientially based. So I gain insights into student use of concepts when we generalize in class. #phdchat (original tweet)

@profology (23/01/13 19:55:11) - Are your students actually learning? Does College Put Kids on a Party Pathway? http://t.co/WBbg4WpM #highered #faculty #pedagogy #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:55:41) - @mjwalton13 So impact could be just asking the questions! #phdchat (original tweet)

@CMBuddle (23/01/13 19:55:41) - @Comprof1 @qui_oui one thing to mention- I've continually been surprised by which of my papers get cited ie. impact not predictable #PhDChat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 19:56:24) - @linguistics12 #phdchat Yes! (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 19:56:48) - @mjwalton13 participative action research says yes & I'm sure other methods might too #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 19:56:56) - #phdchat good researchers may only have some, not all of the needed attributes, hence teams! I am a poor completer-finishe..... (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 19:57:23) - @Comprof1 do u need to be known? I'll settle for just a few more people engaging with the issues, even if they know nothing abt me #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:57:24) - @Comprof1 personally, I've problems with academic research if it doesn't have impact - but I've always been a little anti-academic #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:57:34) - @CMBuddle @qui_oui I cowrote a paper that was just to help w/ admin (business ethics). Became very popular. #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 19:58:13) - @Comprof1 - absolutely. The obsession with - often premature - answers is a bane of our educational age #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:58:17) - @DrHelenKara I'm in #phdchat at moment & will be multi-tasking with #eswphd in a few minutes :) (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 19:58:24) - @CMBuddle @qui_oui My current research on distributed groups and knowledge building doesn't seem to be a "hot topic" right now #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 19:59:22) - @_erica_lewis If u r interested & have enough data for PhD, chances r that others will be interested & u will contrib 2 field #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (23/01/13 19:59:49) - @Comprof1 critical + feminist researchers always ask in whose interests we produce knowledge. This reframes the notion of impact #Phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 19:59:53) - @SarahLaneCawte @comprof1 completely agree with wanting to see more engagement - the issues & responses are important to me #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:00:11) - @linguistics12 By asking questions, we give credence to the issue. #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:00:11) - my prob: significant, but unfundable RT @LBA_OX12: AmandaMichelle Or thinking that ur topic &/or data aren't significant enough.... #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrHelenKara (23/01/13 20:00:25) - @lizith Multi-tasking, yoga for the mind ;-) #phdchat #eswphd (original tweet)

@CMBuddle (23/01/13 20:00:41) - @Comprof1 @qui_oui it's an impt point re: training grad students- u cannot predict what work u do will (most) influence discipline #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 20:00:55) - @DrDaveHowells Great to have another #dementia person on #phdchat. What's the highest impact/best research you've read recently? (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:01:12) - @ThomsonPat How does it reframe impact? #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 20:01:38) - @DrHelenKara guess it's the nearest I get to gymnastics much of the time :) #eswphd #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:02:03) - @_erica_lewis @mjwalton13 i'm doing (plannin) PAR for my research. it's the only reason i came to the #phd in the first place. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:02:04) - @ThomsonPat Can you expand? I sort of understand what you're saying (we're silenced if it doesn't fit the estblished knowledge) #phdchat (original tweet)

@CMBuddle (23/01/13 20:02:10) - @Comprof1 @qui_oui therefore strive for quality all the time - must be proud of all your work even if u think some is "low impact" #PhDChat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:02:29) - sorry to be late to the #phdchat - this is the first night I've been able to come (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:02:46) - @SarahLaneCawte @comprof1 impact might be multiplied by scale, but prob depends on what you research & who you are reaching #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 20:03:20) - @DoctoralNet In some instances. May depend on yr partic research. I wd like to inform the debate in my field & am not FT academic #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrHelenKara (23/01/13 20:03:23) - @lizith That would be you and me both. *creak* *groan* #eswphd #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:03:30) - @CMBuddle @qui_oui Or low public impact but perhaps high impact to a niche or small group #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (23/01/13 20:03:59) - @LBA_OX12 if we produce knowledge for equity we want to make sure it does more than sit on a shelf, we want to get it out there(1) #Phdchat (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:04:29) - @lizith faculty I work w/ debate about this all the time. If good research doesn't get communicated, then little impact. #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:04:33) - @annatatton1 #phdchat Best #dementia read is http://t.co/e0zjEMMc Greatly inspired by the methods and crunching my SPSS till the early hrs! (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 20:04:41) - @DrHelenKara LOL! #eswphd #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:04:51) - @SarahLaneCawte good point - same principle as you're not the only person thinking he question #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:04:58) - what is "impact" anyway, #phdchat? i think we (should/can) have our own personal goals, but like y'all said, we can't predict or direct. (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:05:15) - @ThomsonPat Thx. Knowledge for equity? #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (23/01/13 20:05:31) - @LBA_OX12 and into the hands of people who might benefit from it. We might work with them as partners in research to start with #Phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:05:48) - @ThomsonPat @LBA_OX12 but system currently is against "getting it out there" unless fits commercial mold (at least in US). #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (23/01/13 20:06:10) - @LUDissertation is part of that discussion who to communicate with, when and how? I need to get my stuff out there, but unsure how #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:06:16) - #phdchat The best researchers are the ones nice enough to talk stats with me! (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:07:02) - ...of course i wonder abt the 'direct' part. we choose which journals to pursue, conferences to present, etc. that effects impact. #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (23/01/13 20:07:27) - @Comprof1 eg community organisations, professional bodies,media, exhibitions, range of publications, social media #Phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:07:29) - @xarahc @NSRiazat That is wht I think is fun about research methodology- how it helps us clarify so much/our assumptions not least #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:07:45) - @lizith That's why I feel I have impact in teaching. At least teaching about groups and knowledge so next gen understands. #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 20:08:12) - @HallGed interesting #phdchat now about #impact (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:08:18) - @AmandaMichelle me too - planning PAR - & a big part of why I'm doing my Phd #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:08:36) - #phdchat It's a big ask for unrewarded 'subjects' (or colleagues) to agree to research, so 'influence' and 'credibility' must be important. (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:08:53) - @Comprof1 system of tenure? Or system of publishing? #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 20:09:11) - @DrDaveHowells Oh - give us qual researchers some credit too! ;-) We might not talk stats so much but we have gd stories! #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:09:29) - @lba_ox12 bettr researchers? systems that work, how to judge scale and work with it, working with stakeholders, #phdchat not often mentioned (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:10:01) - .@DoctoralNet welcome - this is one of my favourite places to spend Wednesday night #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:10:16) - @DoctoralNet Which stakeholders? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:10:16) - Do you think impact might be more important in UK than other countries? #phdchat What about importance of impact in funded vs. unfunded? (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:10:52) - @_erica_lewis .@DoctoralNet And counts as sort of PhDing..... #phdchat (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 20:11:23) - @DrDaveHowells #phdchat what about qualitative researchers? Can they have impact in #dementia too? (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:11:24) - @LUDissertation Academia so system of tenure and system of hiring/tenure/promotion #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:11:32) - @Comprof1 Unfunded as self-funded? Why the distinction? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Judiebbrell (23/01/13 20:11:35) - @_erica_lewis @DoctoralNet #phdchat using PAR too so impact gained from research process - would be good to share thoughts? (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:11:40) - @_erica_lewis ooh, what area(s)? and how are you finding 'standards'? my dep't is not good into PAR. #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (23/01/13 20:12:01) - @LBA_OX12 c Morwenna griffiths' book getting off the fence, if you position self as critical feminist post critical epistemology. #Phdchat (original tweet)

@0lhos (23/01/13 20:12:09) - #phdchat may I ask which late, great & famous past researchers have had the biggest Impact, & what that tells us about what Impact means? (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:13:34) - @ThomsonPat Thx #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:14:03) - @LBA_OX12 In US at anyrate research=commercial/social impact. Self-funded research is more for individual knowledge. #phdchat (original tweet)

@xseniz9587 (23/01/13 20:14:47) - FINAL CHAPTER OF MY #PhD HAS BEEN DRAFTED. I HAVE A WHOLE DRAFT (almost). EXCITEMENT! #phdchat (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:14:49) - @Comprof1 My institution has no tenure for faculty. I publish/research b/c I want to not b/c I have to. #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:14:54) - @AmandaMichelle there are a couple of us knocking around #phdchat I think @ThomsonPat is our resident expert (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:15:23) - @comprof1 #phdchat - my research too always driven by pure interest/need to know to go deeper into a topic (original tweet)

@Posterfolio (23/01/13 20:15:24) - Men more likely than women to commit research fraud, study finds http://t.co/9B7ZfEvP #phdchat #iamscience #scio13 #openscience #openaccess (original tweet)

@annatatton1 (23/01/13 20:15:27) - @DrDaveHowells #phdchat Can you explain that last tweet? Can you give an example? (original tweet)

@BiologistJohn (23/01/13 20:15:35) - #PhDchat - Is work experience essential when applying to university? http://t.co/1N9c5bIN via @guardian #HigherEd #education (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:15:52) - @0lhos There was a woman mathmatician that Einstein used in his research. Her research did not impact her time b/c she was a woman #phdchat (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 20:16:39) - @DoctoralNet @NSRiazat fun isn't a word that I would rush to use re methodology ;-) But it can be strategically interesting #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:17:27) - @mjwalton13 #phdchat depends on subject bt research that starts on the impact at the end loses the op to involve all the real stakeholders, (original tweet)

@HallGed (23/01/13 20:17:39) - @annatatton1 thanks for the heads up. Be interesting to see what thoughts come up about #impact during #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:18:05) - @DoctoralNet so perhaps field of study also changes the importance of impact or form it takes #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:18:51) - @drdavehowells #phdchat - got to agree 200% on teams, not just in research (original tweet)

@KL_Wheat (23/01/13 20:19:08) - Great opportunity for #ECRchat #phdchat with @tom_hartley MT"Have PhD? MRI aging & Alzheimer's, 1 year 23K internship http://t.co/jqHcWyOl" (original tweet)

@ianrobsons (23/01/13 20:20:19) - @JaneDavis13 I am celebrating by being man ill. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:21:02) - @DoctoralNet @DrDaveHowells Problem is if you have everyone good at research design but not analysis/completer! #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:22:00) - @judiebbrell @_erica_lewis #phdchat - impact from PAR 3+ levels, personal=reflection/reflexion cycle, PAR group=outcomes, #acri=journals (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 20:22:03) - @Comprof1 @doctoralnet Agree.Big diffs bet(e.g.) research that aims to explain phenomena & research that aims to influence practice?#phdchat (original tweet)

@LPquarterly (23/01/13 20:23:01) - The @LPquarterly website has the NEW #CFP 2013 deadlines: http://t.co/JEffCDrg Send your manuscripts #phdchat #acwri #OpenAccess #gradchat (original tweet)

@Judiebbrell (23/01/13 20:23:30) - @DoctoralNet @_erica_lewis #phdchat Good way to describe it - thanks (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:23:58) - @SarahLaneCawte @DoctoralNet Yes. Perhaps difference in personality of researcher. #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:24:07) - @DoctoralNet well either we talk about the research/teaching nexus & deliver, or we should stop pretending #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:24:10) - sorry, had to step away from #phdchat for a few. at least now i know why they haven't fixed my bathroom yet. (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:24:26) - @DoctoralNet @DrDaveHowells I agree, but in doctoral programs are valuing team writing/research or emphasizing solo work? #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:24:52) - @comprof1 the woman is anonymous thing impacted work in all fields- few became a Curie #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:25:56) - @xarahc #phdchat -research gets to be fun - like an extreme sport is fun (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:27:14) - @DoctoralNet So public impact was not as important. I have been a researcher for over 30 yrs (since HS) because I find it interestg #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:27:42) - O_O RT @LUDissertation: @Comprof1 My institution has no tenure for faculty. I publish/research b/c I want to not b/c I have to. #phdchat (original tweet)

@HallGed (23/01/13 20:27:48) - @LBA_OX12 I think #impact is more than communication there has 2 b a change as a result of the communication #phdchat (original tweet)

@_erica_lewis (23/01/13 20:28:08) - @Judiebbrell @doctoralnet can I add a fourth? Taking it to scale, beyond the original PAR group & to interested grassroots others #phdchat (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:28:25) - @Comprof1 @SarahLaneCawte @DoctoralNet Difference in purpose of the research; the researcher's personality not an issue. #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:28:48) - i'd agree w/ this. RT @Comprof1: @DoctoralNet so perhaps field of study also changes the importance of impact or form it takes #phdchat (original tweet)

@Judiebbrell (23/01/13 20:29:12) - @_erica_lewis @doctoralnet #phdchat very true (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 20:29:18) - @Judiebbrell @DoctoralNet yes, I'm looking forward to the fun part (analysis) which is hopefully just around the corner :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 20:29:31) - @Comprof1 - oh but it may have, albeit usurped. But that's another issue... #phdchat (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:29:39) - @LUDissertation #phdchat I guess, phd is about finding your strength and seeing the areas you would be better off leaving to someone else. (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 20:29:53) - @Judiebbrell @DoctoralNet unless the analysis provides fun-free adrenaline of course lol #phdchat (original tweet)

@HallGed (23/01/13 20:31:00) - @lizith @LBA_OX12 #impact is a team game. A good researcher needs 2 know who can help them 2 fill a skills gap #phdchat (original tweet)

@XarahC (23/01/13 20:31:04) - @AmandaMichelle @_erica_lewis hmm, both clearly important selection criteria too. It seems PAR remains perennially unpopular in aca #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:31:13) - @_erica_lewis #phdchat- I agree, ed research to me has the most impact at the personal level on teaching not policy or institutions (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:31:14) - @XarahC @Judiebbrell @DoctoralNet I find the design/data collection the most fun. We'd make a good team if u agreed to do analysis #phdchat (original tweet)

@linguistics12 (23/01/13 20:31:45) - @DoctoralNet - good ideas, Steven Johnson says, seldom come from one person and one place. It's the same with "impact" #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (23/01/13 20:32:18) - @lizith Agree completely.... #phdchat (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:32:39) - @DrDaveHowells Have to be acceptable in all areas to finish the dissertation, but after that you can leave parts to someone else! #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 20:32:57) - @LUDissertation @comprof1 @doctoralnet Yes - that's what I meant. That's why no 1 set of answers to what is gd or what is impact. #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:33:54) - @XarahC @_erica_lewis *sigh* yeah, i'm seeing that more & more, the further i poke. think i'll be making up lots as i go along. #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:34:34) - @XarahC @_erica_lewis but i'm trying to gather as much as possible for reading/prep purposes ahead of time. #phdchat (original tweet)

@DoctoralNet (23/01/13 20:36:17) - @linguistics12 #phdchat totally agree - do you know the book Group Genius? Really convincing (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:36:21) - @LUDissertation that's where being around other good researchers would help to #phdchat but Team must have enough time to devote to research (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (23/01/13 20:37:04) - Well, need to get back to class prep. Tomorrow's first day of semester. #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (23/01/13 20:40:12) - #phdchat Thanks everyone. Gd to think abt these issues. Lots to ponder & all part of developing as a researcher. (original tweet)

@DrDaveHowells (23/01/13 20:41:59) - #phdchat Impact may be analogous to (genetic) shift and drift. Small changes are important to refine the model, but the big changes excite! (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (23/01/13 20:42:05) - alright, time to finish this #storify/blog post & get on with something that will earn me a grade or advance something else. great #phdchat! (original tweet)

@LUDissertation (23/01/13 20:42:18) - Thanks! This was my first #phdchat but not my last! (original tweet)
