#phdchat tweet log - Wed 31 Jul 2013


@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:39:20) - MT @ai1sa: live #phdchat, topic for today: How the study changes; what does, doesn't & why? (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:39:39) - @LBA_OX12 only retrospectively can i really see the tangent of what i studied #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:40:08) - @ai1sa I'm upfront abt what happened in the second phase, but less so abt complete change 15/12 in #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:40:59) - @ai1sa return to original RQ in concs, suggesting it is an area that could be explored further for +ve reasons #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:42:29) - I think there are those things that change that are outside our control - & may mean major rethink - & the refining from iteration #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:43:33) - Did the data change the question Liz? #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:43:47) - i will say that i thought i was changing focus at 1 pt. wrote up a whole 'new' list of ?s, realized they were just rephrasings #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:44:34) - but i think that showed i was starting to think differently about my topic, nonetheless. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (2013-07-31 19:44:38) - @ai1sa The original RQs were trying to cover 4 angles in each RQ - they're now more open in some ways & yet more specific #PhDchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:45:27) - @LBA_OX12 its an interesting tension isnt it? #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:46:50) - exactly! #phdchat RT @ai1sa: AmandaMichelle ahhh so an opportunity for refinement? (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:46:51) - As i used semistructured interview Qs i would find myself on new tangents #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:47:07) - @ai1sa re-focused than changed; instead of collaboration focused on problem areas, but space for work on collab raised in viva #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:47:42) - <~ concerned abt this potential RT @ai1sa: As i used semistructured interview Qs i would find myself on new tangents #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:48:05) - @ai1sa means I can highlight this as area for further work in the concs rewrite :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:49:59) - @AmandaMichelle remember you are in control of how far your pursue tangents & how far put on shelf for 'further work' @ai1sa #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:50:30) - During lit reviewing phase, the question needs to alter to be addressing gaps? #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:51:24) - @lizith @ai1sa actually not so much. i'll be doing participatory work, so i've got to figure out how to manage that. #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:53:26) - @AmandaMichelle @lizith i found there were tensions with site of study asking if i could also do this and that. v hard to say no #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (2013-07-31 19:54:51) - @ai1sa Yes. Also practicalities of amount of data to collect & analyse #PhDchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 19:54:56) - @ai1sa @lizith that's the main concern. how do i help the group stay 'on track' when it's not just 'my' project to direct? #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 19:55:03) - @ai1sa @amandamichelle At some point have to draw boundary - initial RQ first draft boundary - but have to firm up at some point #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:56:49) - @AmandaMichelle @lizith dont think i said no to them, they were so good letting me in, being so open. Being useful to them was impt #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 19:59:49) - @lizith @amandamichelle part of my longterm and PT phd was caused by helping them write a report for a community health board #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:02:10) - What about writing intent? Anyone manage to 'write to the plan'? #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:03:38) - @AmandaMichelle @lizith yes thats a serious tension, esp in action reserch, also in ethnography focus of interest shift over time #phdchat (original tweet)

@AmandaMichelle (2013-07-31 20:04:06) - @ai1sa @lizith oh wow. yeah, no. i'm hoping to do my research w/ the same group where i'm doing MSW field placement, so we'll see #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:05:36) - i elected to keep the structure of a phd as typical: the Q, lit, res methodology, data/discussion/ conclusion. This morphed also! #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:08:53) - @ai1sa I ended up with a fairly trad structure, but got there via some quite wacky alternatives :) iteration again! #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:09:18) - Serious issue arose just as i was intending to finish, newspaper headline of 'text counselling kills' Stopped me in my tracks. #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (2013-07-31 20:09:28) - @ai1sa I've been advised to follow trad/standard structure - examiners expect this (apparently) #PhDchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:10:35) - @ai1sa just what you don't want at the end - any more than an article or book saying what you want to say! #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:11:10) - Lots of soul searching- and writing of how what i studied could be used/abused. Wrote it as an afterword #phdchat (original tweet)

@Paully232000 (2013-07-31 20:11:25) - @lizith @0lhos I will hopefully be here all night to see who is here. Didnt advertise much so probably just a few of us #eswphd #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:11:53) - @LBA_OX12 @ai1sa I think non-standard OK if can make a good argument for why more appropriate - but standard avoids extra problems #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:12:50) - @Paully232000 @0lhos I would guess possibly those around last week, but possibly quite quiet #eswphd#phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:13:12) - @LBA_OX12 i decided what i was studying & how i would write of it would be radical enough in data/discussion section. #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:13:52) - @ai1sa I guess in UK, that might have been a point of discussion in viva #phdchat (original tweet)

@MargaretEdits (2013-07-31 20:14:04) - Writer Unboxed » Freelance #Editing: How to Hire an Editor for Your Book or Query Letterhttp://t.co/S4KRVbUTrW #acwri #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:14:13) - @Paully232000 welcome :) #phdchat (original tweet)

@LBA_OX12 (2013-07-31 20:15:16) - @ai1sa I had discussion early on with s'pvsr & was recommended 2 follow trad format #PhDchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:16:44) - not sure where this fits, but worth remembering examiners may see things diff from sups - sometimes have to follow gut feelings #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:17:26) - was 4ever going backwards/forwards as i attemptd 2 stay on track, really didnt understnd how much i would to do this when i set out #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:18:02) - my examiners were very +ve abt things my sup'rs told me were high risk. Diff examiners might have taken same view as sups. #phdchat (original tweet)

@HeleneTyrrell (2013-07-31 20:18:34) - "A carefully crafted sentence ... helps its reader navigate tricky terrain like a well-hewn walking stick."#phdwriteup #PhDchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:19:09) - @LBA_OX12 yes, i found there was enough risks in what i was doing i didnt want to make it unrecognizable and therefore unpassable #phdchat (original tweet)

@lizith (2013-07-31 20:19:29) - #phdchat have to get DH from station - been good talking - see you next week (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:20:46) - @lizith i had different examiners with differnt views! Had to decide what i would/wouldnt change when corrections asked 4/suggested #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:22:24) - @lizith Bye Liz, thanks for being here, best wishes with the writing #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:25:21) - My writing intent morphed considerbly- aligned with research methodology; reality being multiple argument led me to multi conclusns #phdchat (original tweet)

@ai1sa (2013-07-31 20:27:35) - #phdchat drawing to a close: advice to others on phd journey ? be as clear as you can be but also open to change? to learning? to adapting (original tweet)

@rasberryheart (2013-07-31 20:34:12) - @domkauter and @rory_mul I cannot imagine life without the 3-finger tap function on our Macs when reading journal articles #phd #PhDchat (original tweet)
