#phdchat tweet log - Wednesday 15th May 2013

 

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:30:10) - Hello all - tonite's topic is data analysis and interpretation - sharing notes etc on the challenges & practicalities - how 2 do it #phdchat (original tweet)

@socphd (15/05/13 18:30:22) - Why not spring into blogging action? If you're a novice blogger why not let us support your debut? #phdforum #phdchat #socsci #psych (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:32:37) - 4 those of U on the other side, what was ur experience of data analysis/interpretation? Any tips? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:33:04) - @LBA_OX12 very timely as it's what I'm doing right now :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:34:08) - @LBA_OX12 from my experience so far I think it's important not to rush this process ~ it takes a lot of time and reflection #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:34:21) - @EmmaBurnettx So am I. Looking for an idiot's guide...... #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:35:14) - @LBA_OX12 are you following a specific framework? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:35:16) - @EmmaBurnettx - yes, not to rush - have 2 soak urself in the data #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:35:56) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx - pilot study really helped with ensuring that I had good data. I changed a lot of my questions. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:36:30) - @LBA_OX12 I worry sometimes - bigger concepts are starting to pop into my mind but I don't think I'm ready for that stage yet... #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:36:38) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx ~ think the way we collect data really depends on the research questions being asked. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:37:20) - @EmmaBurnettx Pragmatic - using Bazeley http://t.co/dLC2BkYCID - practical guide - finding Miles & Huberman a little dense #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 18:38:29) - @NSRiazat Agreed. Research questions should guide the type of data collection and analysis, too. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:38:56) - @LBA_OX12 I'm mainly Miles & Huberman - took me a while to get my head round it but I also tap into Bazeley. Principles similar #phdchat (original tweet)

@IvyAMCargile (15/05/13 18:39:11) - Support @SenWarren's Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act http://t.co/2bbQGpU1fj? | via @CREDOMobile #BankonStudents #phdchat #cutstudntdebt (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:39:53) - I started with thematic but changed to IPA which I felt encouraged deeper analysis from me #Phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:40:02) - @NSRiazat absolutely and always keep my eyes on the research questions while analysing - lots of data not applicable to RQs #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:40:12) - @EmmaBurnettx New version of Miles & Huberman is published early next month http://t.co/idL9v1ce58 #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:40:26) - @strictlykaren 'IPA'? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:41:33) - @strictlykaren did you consult with your sups often during analysis/interpretation stages or just got on with it? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:41:44) - @LBA_OX12 I have it on order! #phdchat (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:41:47) - @LBA_OX12 interpretative phenomenological analysis, smith flowers and osborn #Phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:42:55) - Has anyone prepared a data analysis plan? #phdchat (original tweet)

@juliechristie1 (15/05/13 18:42:55) - MT@NSRiazat: Academic Phrasebank from the University of Manchester. #phdchat #phd #demphd http://t.co/XSuaf8umzm (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:43:09) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx @strictlykaren - I had a lot of feelings, thoughts, impressions and judgements to collect as data. #phdchat (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:43:23) - @EmmaBurnettx just usual supervision which was every couple of months, gave them worked transcripts so they cld see my analysis #Phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:43:38) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx - verbal descriptions then needed to be triagulated with observations and documentary analysis. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:43:59) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx - this meant different kinds of data collection all with different techniques. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:44:13) - @LBA_OX12 I did - took me a while because there's not much out there about what one looks like. Plan to publish after analysis #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:44:24) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx - also found being close to my particpants meant harder to be detached. #phdchat (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:44:41) - I have included an extract of a transcript with analytic notes as an appendix to thesis also #Phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:44:58) - @LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx - so difficult to document accurately qualitative data. Snapshop at best? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:45:05) - I'm in phase 1 of mixed methods - interviews Then plan 2 develop survey from phase 1 findings #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:45:32) - @EmmaBurnettx Agreed. Ur blog post was v. helpful #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:46:03) - @EmmaBurnettx @strictlykaren - supervisors are brilliant for giving different perspectives to data. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:46:22) - What software are ppl using? Dedoose 4 me - http://t.co/rL05jQQ8to #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:46:42) - @strictlykaren planning something similar - extracts from NVivo to illustrate progression with thinking #phdchat (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:47:32) - @EmmaBurnettx good to demonstrate decision making #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:47:35) - @NSRiazat @strictlykaren how much input did they have Nasima? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:47:36) - @LBA_OX12 - wonder if people can share their thoughts on how they chose and selected a sample? Mine was very much opportunity. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 18:47:48) - @LBA_OX12 Using Dedoose for another research project w/my chair. Love it, helps get the process started #phdchat#phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:48:33) - @strictlykaren @EmmaBurnettx Documenting as I go along - including in RM chapter as rough draft 4 later #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:48:40) - @EmmaBurnettx - agreed - only used small portion of my data in actual thesis. Rest used to clarify themes emerging. #phdchat #groundedtheory (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:49:17) - @EmmaBurnettx @strictlykaren - mainly feedback on draft chapters as opposed to actually influencing thinking. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:50:01) - @EmmaBurnettx @strictlykaren - 'have you thought about this...' angles to analysing data as opposed to directing it. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:50:03) - @Prof_Polzin Still working out 2 use/experimenting with analyses etc on Dedoose #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:52:00) - @NSRiazat that's good to know. It's same my end but sometimes I worry that they don't influence my thinking if that makes sense! #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:52:30) - @bprerna @LBA_OX12 - participants can also be accessible in the sense 'available' but INaccessible in what they prepared to share. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:52:40) - There is something about getting stuck in & learning as I go along. Anyone else? #phdchat (original tweet)

@strictlykaren (15/05/13 18:52:53) - Sorry got to go, will catch up on thread later #Phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:53:37) - @strictlykaren see you later Karen :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:53:39) - @NSRiazat Agreed #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:53:39) - @EmmaBurnettx - guess their job is advise/support as opposed to influence. It's our thesis in the end and therefore own thoughts? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:54:16) - @bprerna @LBA_OX12 - agreed - building links with anyone who can help with accessing research site/participants can only be good. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:54:33) - Found I generated/used many codes - now aggregating up ready for 2nd pass coding #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:54:47) - @NSRiazat definitely ~ and also it is only us that can defend it in the viva #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 18:55:12) - @NSRiazat @EmmaBurnettx - a lot depends upon your research methodology though. #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:55:27) - @EmmaBurnettx - valid point about viva. Gathering good data is the key to a good viva? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:55:53) - Bazeley has some good tips on how 2 start when you've done 1st pass coding, tons of data & don't know where 2 start #phdchat (original tweet)

@NextScientist (15/05/13 18:56:03) - PhD survey >> Where do you need help the most?? http://t.co/ud6d6KlcLm #phdchat #phdforum #highered (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:56:04) - @LBA_OX12 same - through pattern coding, I've now condensed quite a lot of mine, which made me a little anxious I have to say! #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 18:56:53) - @EmmaBurnettx Viva? The equivalent of a defense? #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:57:01) - @LBA_OX12 - pilot study really helped to firm up the final research questions and methods I was going to use. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:57:04) - @NSRiazat good as in the data needs to answer your RQs #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:57:17) - @EmmaBurnettx Yes, & focus/emphasis of some my pattern codes are going 2 B different #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:57:33) - @Prof_Polzin yes - same thing :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:57:37) - @bprerna - talking of using voice - do people write thesis in first person or third person? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 18:58:12) - @EmmaBurnettx Thanks! #phdchat (original tweet)

@NSRiazat (15/05/13 18:58:32) - @EmmaBurnettx - I had to adjust the research questions slightly as a result of pilot study findings. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:58:58) - Is anyone using statistical analysis? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 18:59:01) - @LBA_OX12 also keeping in mind that people maybe saying different things, yet talking about the same thing ~ leads to categories #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 18:59:12) - @NSRiazat - usually in ethnographic research, the first person pronoun is quite common although some academics wouldn't agree. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 18:59:40) - @EmmaBurnettx Good thought #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:00:21) - @NSRiazat I did my methodology chapter in first person, but re wrote it in 3rd person. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 19:00:24) - @LBA_OX12 Using logistical regression, but haven't gotten to that point yet. Collecting data through December. #phdchat (original tweet)

@juliechristie1 (15/05/13 19:00:35) - @NSRiazat: Would like to do a #phdchat about 'academic/ECR interviews'. Any takers who would like to host it? #highered #phdchat #demphd (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:01:11) - @Prof_Polzin What are U using 4 this? #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 19:02:28) - @LBA_OX12 Committee member wants me to use Excel for calculations. Heard SPSS would be better, but has a learning curve. #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 19:02:37) - @LBA_OX12 What are you using? #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:02:54) - @EmmaBurnettx @NSRiazat I know. I had to constantly tell myself to write in 3rd person too. quite bizarre. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (15/05/13 19:03:07) - @DeniseT01 they are talking about data analysis on #phdchat tonight also :) great minds think alike #eswphd (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:03:18) - @Prof_Polzin Haven't worked that out yet... #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:05:17) - How does data interpretation differ from analysis? When do U move from analysis to interpretation? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:05:22) - @bprerna @NSRiazat I found it more enjoyable to write in the 1st person, but it read much better (academically) in the 3rd person #phdchat (original tweet)

@Prof_Polzin (15/05/13 19:08:16) - @LBA_OX12 I'll B heavily relying on my stats committee member, feel the need 2 go w/what she's comfortable using. Subject 2 change! #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:09:34) - @EmmaBurnettx @NSRiazat Yeah I know.I wish if researchers could actually exercise their voice though. It's a pity it is discouraged #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:10:21) - @bprerna @NSRiazat Agree totally #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:10:55) - @LBA_OX12 - You necessarily don't. Eg. while using Grounded theory for data analysis, you never do. happens simultaneously. #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:11:28) - @bprerna @EmmaBurnettx @NSRiazat My advisor encourages 1st person. Go figure #phdchat #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:11:44) - How do U factors issues of validity & reliability in ur data analyses/interpretation? #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:12:11) - @LBA_OX12 Interpretation as the core of the "Implications" chapter? #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:12:21) - @LBA_OX12 - It is because of the 'constant comparison' and 'theoretical sampling' that the researcher is expected to do. #phdchat (original tweet)

@maggieyancey (15/05/13 19:12:42) - Bad title, but interesting piece w/a bit of insight into where today's freshmen are coming from. #highered #phdchat http://t.co/D0UB1RRFsH (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:13:30) - @klbz Implications chapter = discussion chapter? #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:13:37) - @LBA_OX12 My advisor: issues of validity/reliability dependent on yr theoretical framework. #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:14:33) - @LBA_OX12 Guess it depends on whether your interpretations are your "conclusions"? LOL #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:15:55) - @klbz Now I understand #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:16:30) - @klbz @LBA_OX12 - Yes definitely. quantitative/qualitative both have their own ways to approach this. #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:18:21) - @bprerna @LBA_OX12 Study design, methods of data collection & interpretation, theoretical frame: do what your advisor says. #phdchat (original tweet)

@ChereLouise (15/05/13 19:19:26) - searching for ex. of how #deleuze may be used in applied #urbanresearch ... beside #eyalweizman on #idf, do u have any advice? #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:19:35) - @klbz Spvsr is hands off - is a sounding board #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:19:39) - @klbz thats interesting. Could you elaborate further? In what way? #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:20:49) - @EmmaBurnettx The "do what yr advisor says" part? #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:21:58) - @klbz no, the validity/reliability dependant on theoretical framework part #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:22:24) - @klbz @bprerna No - expected to develop own ideas 1st & check them out with spvr - different approach #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:23:06) - @LBA_OX12@klbz Spvsr is hands off - is a sounding board ~ mine too. They very clear it's my PhD, my decisions #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:23:48) - @EmmaBurnettx Well, if you're working from a positivist/Post-p framework, then you accept paradigms of true/false as absolutes. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:24:15) - @EmmaBurnettx Same here. Something 2 do with having more life experience? #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:24:52) - @EmmaBurnettx @klbz - If you are using case study approach for instance, the same old 'validity' principle usually doesn't apply. #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:25:08) - @EmmaBurnettx If yr working within a poststructural frame, the absolute nature of reliability/validity is called into question. #phdchat (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:26:20) - @klbz ah ok tho different from the other end of he continuum #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:26:35) - LBA_OX12 @EmmaBurnettx Depends on the advisor, IMO. Mine is VERY hands-on in terms of managing. #phdchat (original tweet)

@KFeijs (15/05/13 19:26:35) - Wished I discovered #phdchat before completing the PhD! Why is there no #postdocchat equivalent?! Or am I just ignorant of the relevant tag? (original tweet)

@artgeeklibraria (15/05/13 19:27:12) - New blog post on turning my #dissertation into journal articles! http://t.co/SUBw0kgUZe #phdchat #academicpublishing #academicwriting (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:27:22) - @EmmaBurnettx Other end of which continuum? (LOL) INterested to hear more. #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:27:50) - @klbz @EmmaBurnettx - Yeah. Lincoln and Guba for eg. proposed 4 diff criteria for qualitative based research. #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:28:35) - @KFeijs @jeffreykeefer is wondering the same stuff. Might want to follow him & chat. #phdchat (original tweet)

@UCLAdrian (15/05/13 19:29:17) - He's about the creation of #qualitative ethnography #phdchat @uclagseis #highered @UCLA (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:29:39) - @klbz lol positivism ~ I'm coming from a weak social constructionism approach. Theoretical framework only used loosely #phdchat (original tweet)

@klbz (15/05/13 19:31:27) - @EmmaBurnettx Wow. Consistency of study design & theoretical framework has been pounded into my head. I might be jealous of you. #phdchat (original tweet)

@bprerna (15/05/13 19:31:33) - @klbz @KFeijs @JeffreyKeefer This is a good resource for validity/reliability Qs.http://t.co/AB2EAZhmCt #phdchat [#research #data #analysis] (original tweet)

@EmmaBurnettx (15/05/13 19:32:13) - @KFeijs you're still welcome here anytime with some words of wisdom :) Perhaps @NSRiazat may know of a similar postdoc #? #phdchat (original tweet)

@UCLAdrian (15/05/13 19:32:50) - Erickson, Educational research - 'things today are so different...the intellectual sock has been turned inside out' / @UCLAdrian #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (15/05/13 19:32:53) - @bprerna Thx - very useful #phdchat (original tweet)
