'What can we learn from those researching different disciplines to our own?'

 

#phdchat tweet log - 24th April 2013

 

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:30:25) - Hi Everyone. Welcome to this week's #phdchat : What can we learn from those researching different disciplines to our own? (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:32:18) - at a recent methods seminar there was chat about involving comp sci in online methods, to enable understanding of algorithms etc #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:33:41) - Does anyone have experiences they can share of cross-disciplinary research? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:35:20) - @andienevitt My committee consisted of Org behavior, writing, and ed specialists (2 from ed, 1 from mgmt dept). #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:36:17) - @andienevitt helped with methodology (diff perspectives) and analysis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:37:52) - @andienevitt now I have many venues to present findings. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:38:02) - @Comprof1 Did you find there were differences in direction/interests? How were they managed?#phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:38:41) - I hadn't thought of that. Great point! > RT @Comprof1@andienevitt now I have many venues to present findings. #phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 18:39:12) - @andienevitt how other disciplines combine theory and method in research, could be illuminating#phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:39:32) - @andienevitt one drawback I'm finding is lack of interdisciplinary jobs in academia. They want focus in one academic area #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:40:46) - @andienevitt I had very broad research questions. Could go in many ways with analysis. Refined questions towards one field of study #phdchat (original tweet)

@ChereLouise (24/04/13 18:41:11) - how and how often do you make a back-up of your phd-stuff? I'd really like to use some cloud stuff, but don't know what #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:41:22) - @Comprof1 When I applied for my PhD my uni was excited because I straddled faculties, maybe things are changing? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (24/04/13 18:41:57) - @andienevitt ~ As an part time distance student I don't really come across people in different disciplines to my own area. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:42:06) - @andienevitt I can go back in an reanalyze data based on new questions in new field (i.e. org mgmt, ed policy, applied psych, cmc) #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:42:33) - @socialtheoryapp: Definitely, this is something I notice in discussions about methods particularly#phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 18:42:36) - @Comprof1 @andienevitt they're changing, but slowly. But makes sense, given how strong disciplinary identities are #phdchat (original tweet)

@Kalipizzaro (24/04/13 18:42:48) - Would love to do this MSc if only there was more time and oh yeah I was not doing a #phdchat tuthttp://t.co/kgWbC6cEfP @GlasgowUni (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:43:43) - @NSRiazat Yes it can be tricky in that respect. Do you find Twitter is broadening your access to others though? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:44:39) - @andienevitt My school supported also. Just hiring academic practices don't cross. Do faculties straddle fields at ur uni? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:44:46) - So it then furthers longevity? > RT @Comprof1: I can go back in an reanalyze data based on new questions in new field #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:46:20) - @NSRiazat @andienevitt Not familiar w/ UK phd. Are Phd classes interdisciplinary? In US take courses in other fields if approved #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:46:43) - @Comprof1 Not too sure about the inner workings. There does seem to be outreach and inter-mingling at workshops though #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:47:23) - @andienevitt Or I can see where jobs/grant money is and tailor writing to those using same data.#phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 18:47:58) - @andienevitt @comprof1 would also be interesting to compare similarities across disciplines - around paradigmatic concerns eg #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:48:30) - @andienevitt What is focus of workshops? R they led by different faculty from different fields? #phdchat(original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:48:36) - What are the barriers to cross-disciplinary research? Which do we want to keep? Which do we want to overcome? #phdchat (original tweet)

@MaramAlmansour (24/04/13 18:49:49) - how about "why did I ever decided to do that?" #PhD #phdchat http://t.co/zvGH1SYkfq (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:49:53) - @socialtheoryapp @andienevitt My sister is a speech pathologist. I did diss on workplace writing. Often she'd say, SP does that. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (24/04/13 18:50:05) - @andienevitt ~ did present briefly to others in small topic cohorts/supervisors - useful for feedback & different perspectives. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:50:30) - @socialtheoryapp @andienevitt What might be ground breaking on one discipline is old hat to other discipline. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:50:50) - Agreed >RT @Comprof1@socialtheoryapp @andienevitt What might be ground breaking on one discipline is old hat to other discipline. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:51:31) - @NSRiazat @andienevitt Sometimes describing to non-experts in field allows you to be clearer in description. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:51:50) - @socialtheoryapp @comprof1 Yes. Almost like we need to randomly select different people and leave them in a room to has things out #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:52:14) - @NSRiazat @andienevitt I presented to different fields of study and each gave different resources on same topic. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:52:25) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Almost like having someone beta-read your work? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:53:15) - @NSRiazat I bet that was useful. Do you think there is such a thing as too many perspectives? where do we stop? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:53:23) - @andienevitt @NSRiazat Exactly. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:54:40) - One problem w/ cross disciplinary research is different assumptions that may not be verbalized. Important to clarify assumptions. #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:54:55) - Has anyone ever found themselves having to defend their own methods against those of another discipline? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:56:07) - @andienevitt @NSRiazat Ultimately with committee members/reviewers/examiners. Can't veer to far from their assumptions #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:56:13) - @Comprof1 Yes, can be easy to become complacent within your own field. Could be v valuable experience to have to lay it all out #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 18:57:32) - @andienevitt @NSRiazat Problem I had was differences in perception same word Had to have glossary in dissertation define EVERYTHING #phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 18:57:35) - @andienevitt kind of an occupational hazard in the education field! #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:58:07) - @socialtheoryapp Yes I suppose so! #phdchat (original tweet)

@JeffreyKeefer (24/04/13 18:58:47) - Saw this interesting conference CFP: Social Media and Society http://t.co/4eTJgPLDry Who plans to submit? #SMSociety13 #phdchat #ECRchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 18:59:22) - @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Was that a real problem, or a worthwhile exercise? Did you expect it, or come up against it? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:00:06) - @Comprof1 @andienevitt @NSRiazat In the NHS I had to learn acronyms before i could start my project #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:01:10) - @Paully232000 @Comprof1 @NSRiazat Maybe academic cheat-sheets should be compiled at the start of every cross-disc project? #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:03:06) - Welcome to tonight's #phdchat 7.30-8.30pm (BST). The topic today is what we can learn from working with people in other disclines (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:03:09) - @andienevitt @Comprof1 @NSRiazat I have glossary as long as my arm of terminology learned, even though i used to work in a hospital #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:03:35) - Disciplines! > MT Welcome to tonight's #phdchat. The topic today is what we can learn from working with people in other disclines (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:04:19) - @andienevitt my project is a KTP which is a cooperation between an organisation and academia#phdchat (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:05:23) - #phdchat this means i have a supervisor from a university and from the NHS (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:05:36) - @Paully232000 Can you tell us how that is structured, day-to-day? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:07:51) - @andienevitt monthly meeting between all, and supervision from nhs fortnightly, and left to my own devices with supervisor on hand #phdchat (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (24/04/13 19:08:36) - @andienevitt #phdchat mostly left to my own as long as i do what is required or need assistance otherwise (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:09:39) - How do cross-disc research groups come together? Is it reactive, or proactive? #phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 19:12:40) - @andienevitt preferably they should be organic, but good institutions make space for that to occur#phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:17:27) - Within or between institutions? > MT @socialtheoryapp@andienevitt good institutions make space for that to occur #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:19:50) - Have you ever been pleasantly surprised, or unexpectedly disappointed at relations with other fields?#phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 19:21:09) - @andienevitt preferably both. Big question: is institutional competition a spur to interdisciplinarity?#phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:21:10) - I love talking to scientists, but am often surprised by their questioning of cultural studies methods, which come naturally to me #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:23:06) - @socialtheoryapp Very big question. Can't say I know the answer to that one #phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 19:24:32) - @andienevitt cultural studies and Game of Thrones are made for each other! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Comprof1 (24/04/13 19:25:14) - @andienevitt @socialtheoryapp Not in the US. Innovation is a spur to interdisciplinarity. #phdchat(original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 19:25:27) - @andienevitt yeah it is, unintended consequences and all that #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:26:06) - @socialtheoryapp I think you just quoted from my thesis proposal! Am having to combine eng lit, soc sci, media, cultural studs etc #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:28:31) - Any final thoughts on what we can learn the most from working with researchers in other disciplines?#phdchat (original tweet)

@socialtheoryapp (24/04/13 19:30:44) - @andienevitt Listen properly. Because we might actually learn something :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@andienevitt (24/04/13 19:32:07) - Thanks everyone for your contributions to tonight's #phdchat. Tune in next Weds, 7.30-8.30pm. We now return you to your scheduled viewing... (original tweet)

@lindathestar (25/04/13 04:57:10) - @TheEndeavour Putting current stuff in context is where the older (1980s) books are useful, esp in sex research. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lindathestar (25/04/13 04:58:37) - @TheEndeavour Books & mags from all of 20th century are a fascinating record of social history.#phdchat #alsoadistraction (original tweet)
