'Moving from descriptive to critical writing.'


#phdchat tweet log - 6th March 2013


@NSRiazat (06/03/13 19:29:18) - Welcome to #phdchat I topic tonight is 'moving from descriptive to critical writing' #phd #highered #doctorate (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (06/03/13 19:31:24) - #phdchat - apologies - can't be around tonight but hope the chat is good. Will catch up after. (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:32:14) - @NSRiazat I was surprised that this was a problem in writing my thesis. I never had that problem in journal articles! #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 19:32:44) - @NSRiazat #PhDchat topic is perfect for me tonight! But food is going to interrupt! Will catch up when I can! (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:34:21) - @Comprof1 what helped you move from descriptive to critical writing? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:34:29) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat I have to *force* myself to stop and think otherwise it's all descriptive. I'm getting better though, I hope #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:36:01) - @andienevitt@Comprof1 @NSRiazat I'm a bit the same, although its getting easier as time goes on I think.... #phdchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 19:36:03) - @nsriazat Great topic! I'm interested in critical literature reviews. Most seem to be descriptive which seems a waste! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:36:03) - @EmmaBurnettx I went back to my research questions and answered them Required me to sort through all the data to draw conclustions #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:37:37) - @andienevitt @NSRiazat I think it's especially hard for qual researchers. There is so much data. Need to give reader enuf data #phdchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 19:38:57) - @arejayem65 Very good! #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:39:06) - #phdchat I find trying to identify the 'gap in the research' where my PhD fits means I have to think critically about the literature (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:39:20) - #phdchat My thesis had appendix with description. Helped to define descriptive part and analysis. (original tweet)

@AndrologistUK (06/03/13 19:39:48) - #phdchat Hi everyone, sorry been quiet. Does anyone start off descriptively and then add the critical later or be critical from the start? (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:40:08) - I have a template for my notes where I answer questions I set myself. Basic stuff but it structures my critical thinking #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (06/03/13 19:40:30) - empirical moves - descriptive, analytic, theorised. http://t.co/IvPZc9xEJ9 #Phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:40:56) - @mjwalton13 How do you distinguish between analytical and descriptive? #phdchat (original tweet)

@imafreakninja7l (06/03/13 19:41:42) - Anyone staring the philosophy #mooc at Edin Uni next week? Thought it might be good for #PhD #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahAlden1 (06/03/13 19:41:53) - @AndrologistUK my PhD proposal was critical, so I expanded on that #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:41:55) - @Comprof1 @andienevitt @NSRiazat Definitely, I'm writing a qual paper and I have much more description than critical reflection #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:42:00) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Yes. Difficult with media studies as need to provide synopses etc. Hard to follow critical writing without this #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:42:10) - @mjwalton13 took ages to get there with mine. Ended up doing 2 structured lit reviews to help - helped hugely & both got published #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:42:29) - @andienevitt U r very gd at having organised processes 4 diff aspects of thesis! Really helps to hear abt yr & others' ideas. Thx! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:42:50) - Is quantitative analysis/description different from qualitative analysis/description? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:43:42) - @AndrologistUK I think with most people, critical writing always comes a little later. Rarely right at the beginning #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:43:43) - @SarahLaneCawte Thanks! You should see my desk sometimes though ;) #phdchat (original tweet)

@explorstyle (06/03/13 19:44:02) - My new links post talks about thesis writing groups: http://t.co/74J9uvBsZP #acwri #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:44:48) - @mjwalton13 @Comprof1 Not started my analysis yet, only just started fieldwork, so gd to know what to look out for when writing #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:45:19) - @EmmaBurnettx @AndrologistUK 1) What did I see 2) What does it mean 3) why is it important? #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:45:33) - @mjwalton13 @comprof1 @andienevitt Now writing up qual findings(mixed meths so quant still 2 come). Finding hard only 2 describe #phdchat (original tweet)

@AndrologistUK (06/03/13 19:46:31) - #phdchat my sup suggested I practice writing narrative, perhaps I'm not descriptive enough for a qual project. (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:46:50) - @Comprof1 If people answer this it wd really help me cos abt 2 move from writing up qual data to the quant section! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:46:54) - @EmmaBurnettx @AndrologistUK Final step: rewrite to answer research question. #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:47:55) - @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 @andienevitt I think Qual is harder because there arn't rules on how to describe/summarise data #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:48:43) - @mjwalton13 @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 rules? Pah! I laugh in the face of rules (then hope someone tells me what I'm doing wrong) #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:49:15) - @mjwalton13 @comprof1 @andienevitt Guess most of us have 2 rely on supervisor 4 advice abt expectations of Uni & research field. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:49:28) - @SarahLaneCawte @mjwalton13 @andienevitt So u think quant might be difficult writng description & qual difficult writng analysis? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:50:47) - what is the status of teaching critical writing? Mine wasn't brilliant TBH. Learning more now, but feel it should have come sooner #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:50:58) - @SarahLaneCawte @mjwalton13 @comprof1 @andienevitt my sups great in getting me to think more critical by questioning everything!!! #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:51:03) - @andienevitt @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 haha, standard conventions presenting data (like in quant) puts it better than "rules" #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (06/03/13 19:51:05) - Patricia Goodson= practice exercises 4 quant. http://t.co/6aQutAYzTW. #Phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:53:22) - @andienevitt I think the only tchg I got on this was incidental & relied on feedback on assignments in research training modules #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:54:05) - @EmmaBurnettx @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 @andienevitt My sups are the same! I try to preempt their questions now #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:55:06) - @andienevitt Are you in the UK? In US PhD coursework focuses on critical writing/analysis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 19:55:18) - @Comprof1 @EmmaBurnettx Like suggestion to keep research questions in mind. Can see it helping to locate unique contribution too! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:55:27) - @mjwalton13 @emmaburnettx @comprof1 @andienevitt I have 2 say mine are wonderful (& 1 of them follows me on Twitter!) ;-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 19:55:49) - @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 @andienevitt Does anyone know how to tell if you have enough description for a Qual paper? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:55:50) - @mjwalton13 @EmmaBurnettx @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 @andienevitt Me too! Great viva prep! Lol #phdchat (original tweet)

@ThomsonPat (06/03/13 19:56:01) - Vanderbilt tips on thick description http://t.co/Mn9OqnM8hQ #Phdchat (original tweet)

@KathyEnget (06/03/13 19:56:10) - Interesting topic. I frequently get told my writing is good but too much like book report. Need to be better at telling the story. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 19:56:51) - @andienevitt Did you have sessions on it? I haven't. But I do think it would be helpful (at every level from BA/Sc upwards really!) #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:57:09) - @StephMulrine @comprof1 @emmaburnettx Research qus have 2 be focus. Mine r stuck above my desk so I can't avoid them :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:57:11) - @mjwalton13 @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt I had 80 pgs for one chapter! Told that was plenty of description :)) #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:57:24) - @StephMulrine@Comprof1 my research questions are written on a big poster on my office wall & stuck to the side of my PC monitor! #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 19:57:41) - @Comprof1 Yeah, UK. Don't know how much of the 'lack' was in me during those early years though? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (06/03/13 19:58:06) - How can we define or spot the difference between descriptive and critical writing? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 19:58:29) - @KathyEnget ...so it's important that you also find your voice in your writing... #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 19:58:33) - @KathyEnget Yes, esp qual it is like telling a story. Even quant needs that feeling #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 19:59:24) - @andienevitt @comprof1 I think there's an assumption that we just know how 2 do it. #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 20:00:08) - @EA_Holmes @andienevitt Never been taugh. at undergrad we were mostly expected to repeat others rather than think.That hasnt helped #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:00:27) - @LBA_OX12 Descriptive answers question "what", Critical writing answers "Why" and "How". #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:00:50) - @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt @Comprof1 This assumption is my problem! I feel I would benefit from training in writing! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 20:00:52) - @Comprof1 @kathyenget Find it easier with quant cos can remember the interviewees - giving them voice.Quant = anon questionnaires.#phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 20:01:07) - @SarahLaneCawte @StephMulrine @Comprof1 @EmmaBurnettx I will have to try this #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 20:01:11) - @SarahLaneCawte@StephMulrine @comprof1 ~ Mine are written everywhere too - maybe RQs tattoos could be considered! Lol #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:01:58) - @EmmaBurnettx @Comprof1 Sounds like good idea! I need better research questions first I think! Then stick them where I can't avoid! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (06/03/13 20:02:14) - @Comprof1 Excellent. Thx #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:02:18) - @StephMulrine @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 Me too. Been told my writing *style* is good, but I think I need to get *more* into it #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 20:02:33) - @EmmaBurnettx Ha ha! Not a great idea if u modify them tho! Short qus or big bodies? :-) #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 20:02:44) - @EmmaBurnettx @SarahLaneCawte @StephMulrine @Comprof1 At the rate my RQ change I'd never leave the tattoo parlor! #phdchat (original tweet)

@drwcarter (06/03/13 20:03:19) - Separate writing from editing. #phdchat #socphd #phdforum (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 20:03:24) - @lba_ox12 Good question. I was told "I'll know it when I see it" but that seems unsatisfactory. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 20:03:28) - @SarahLaneCawte@EmmaBurnettx Ha ha! Not a great idea if u modify them tho! Short qus or big bodies? :-) < lol!! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:03:36) - @StephMulrine @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt My Phd courses, learned to create q & a. Comp exams included crit analysis of jrnl art #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:03:50) - recommendation: http://t.co/hkdebBMegp via @mat_hills #phdchat (original tweet)

@KathyEnget (06/03/13 20:03:54) - @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt @comprof1 Programs assume writing skills upfront. A focused class rather than paper due @ end helpful. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 20:03:59) - @mjwalton13@EmmaBurnettx @SarahLaneCawte @StephMulrine @Comprof1 Me neither! #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:04:27) - @EA_Holmes @andienevitt If anyone finds a session tell me! I'll crash it! Overall lack of training in writing, not just critical. #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:04:39) - @StephMulrine @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt 2nd half of comps were papers/articles. This was before thesis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@KathyEnget (06/03/13 20:04:41) - @Comprof1 @LBA_OX12 Good advice thanks. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:05:23) - @StephMulrine @EA_Holmes and it has to start at undergrad level #phdchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 20:05:39) - @stephmulrine Me too! #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (06/03/13 20:06:13) - Sorry everyone - going to have to leave now as I've a presentation to prepare for tomorrow. Great talking to you all. Speak soon :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 20:06:44) - @StephMulrine @ea_holmes @andienevitt Agree! Learned lots abt meths, epistemology etc, but never anything specific on writing #phdchat (original tweet)

@KathyEnget (06/03/13 20:07:39) - @andienevitt @StephMulrine @EA_Holmes This is particularly difficult in professional undergrad like mine where writing not key. #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:07:58) - @andienevitt What sort questions do you ask? Trying to make a temp ATM. Summary: Descriptive, Links to my Res, Critical Response. #PhDchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 20:08:15) - @andienevitt Totally agree. I include it in sessions for my undergrads but I would still like to learn more for my own writing. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:08:17) - We shouldn't forget that critical thought is inseparable from critical writing. Need to teach/be taught how to think critically #phdchat (original tweet)

@mjwalton13 (06/03/13 20:08:42) - @DeniseT01 General really - unless anyone has tips on knowing when you have put enough description into a Qual results section? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:10:30) - @StephMulrine Rhetoric, gaps in the logic, things I don't understand and why, structure, persuasiveness, other work cited/absent #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:11:09) - @andienevitt Great resource for rq, writing, etc... Qualitative Research Design Joseph Maxwell, 2005 Sage.#phdchat (original tweet)

@BrandPhD (06/03/13 20:11:24) - @TallMIGirl Yes - I am doing mine in the UK. It takes 3 years full time and a minimum of 45 months part-time. Where are you based? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (06/03/13 20:11:40) - Do different chapters need different approaches; e.g. cf lit review with discussion chapter? #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:12:07) - @andienevitt @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 I'm told not to worry abt writing 2 much yet. But can't help it! Its where you're critiqued! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:13:09) - @andienevitt Great section on rq. Also, Patten has great chapters on writing up qual research. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:13:24) - @StephMulrine @SarahLaneCawte @Comprof1 Maybe that means *you* don't have to worry about your writing? As in, are you doing well? #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:13:35) - @EA_Holmes @LBA_OX12 Totally agree with you Elizabeth! Too vague! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:13:59) - @andienevitt I might have had advantage because 3 of my profs were researchers in writing! #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:14:27) - @Comprof1 Ah yes, very lucky! #phdchat (original tweet)

@ShahdAlshammari (06/03/13 20:15:56) - Up all night working. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:16:17) - @LBA_OX12 lit review synthesis (actually easy), methodology: description, Findings: analysis & descption; conclusion, analysis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:17:04) - @KathyEnget @SarahLaneCawte @andienevitt @Comprof1 Kathy speaks perfect sense! A workshop at each year/stage of #PhD would be best! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:17:12) - @andienevitt Of course there were times when I didn't think so (after 3 or 4th draft!) #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (06/03/13 20:19:46) - @Comprof1 Excellent. Thx. #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:20:05) - @KathyEnget @andienevitt @EA_Holmes I can imagine critical voice very difficult to develop in your case, Kathy. #PhDchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:20:10) - Constantly amazed by how much I learn about myself and fellow academics during #phdchat (original tweet)

@shepherdmpofu (06/03/13 20:21:26) - 22h00 and still going strong. First phd draft must be out in two months #phdchat #phdforum http://t.co/BBKVPj9dcU (original tweet)

@KathyEnget (06/03/13 20:21:35) - @StephMulrine @andienevitt @EA_Holmes There has definitely been a learning curve. I am lucky to have a patient advisor. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:22:52) - @LBA_OX12 supervisr told me methodology should be descriptn so scholars reading could replicate Of course, also need justification. #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:23:18) - @andienevitt Great ideas, Andrea! Thanks for sharing. Particularly like considering 'persuasiveness'. Will be including! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@SarahLaneCawte (06/03/13 20:23:36) - @Comprof1 @lba_ox12 That makes good sense. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (06/03/13 20:24:25) - @StephMulrine You're welcome! Let me know if you think of any others #phdchat (original tweet)

@wootang01 (06/03/13 20:25:04) - NY Times Opinion: The Country That Stopped Reading #edchat #highered #westhk #phdchat http://t.co/Af06CiTKyA (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (06/03/13 20:25:12) - @Comprof1 Thx. That's how that chap seems to be turning out #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:28:04) - @andienevitt I will do! Only other I know I'll end up having is 'Final rant' if there is a particularly flawed piece! #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:28:26) - #phdchat Other thing need to consider is rhetoric, tone, inductive or deductive reasoning, arrangement of supporting information. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EA_Holmes (06/03/13 20:28:59) - @stephmulrine @andienevitt Really great ideas, thank you! #phdchat (original tweet)

@StephMulrine (06/03/13 20:29:11) - @andienevitt Oh! Actually, as I have sensitive research area, where applicable I'll probably have a section to reflect on 'Ethics'. #PhDchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (06/03/13 20:31:02) - @StephMulrine @andienevitt May want to have it as appendix. Important to include, but maybe not in main document. #phdchat (original tweet)
