  • @WaldenU Doing data collection for research that may be of interest to your doc students & grads; please RT my invite #
  • @mitchellfriedmn Let me try something along these lines . . . #
  • @mitchellfriedmn Thanks! I have emailed some of those individuals, but am not clear how to access their wider populations. #
  • @allonsdanser @christiepooh You would be surprised exactly what I pack for a week or so. Yes, I wash along the way! #
  • @DrGarcia 😉 #
  • @trentmkays You got that one right! To be honest, that was a wonderful surprise about becoming more present on Twitter. #
  • @martin_eve These competitive things, so filled with issues of power and positionality, are not fun at all to navigate. #
  • @trentmkays 😉 #
  • Do you have a doctorate / are a doc student? Troublesome experience? Distance involved? Consider discussing it #ir12 #
  • Do you have a doctorate / are a doc student? Troublesome experience? Distance involved? Consider discussing it #phdchat #
  • @allonsdanser @christiepooh I think I can use some of your restraint! #
  • @martin_eve Goodness, who did that? No . . . better not mention who! #
  • @christiepooh @allonsdanser @RedOxxAffairs I am doing on the carry-on and my laptop. #
  • @allonsdanser Yes, I always travel with only carry-on. This time, however, I need to make sure my bag is not overweight as that was an issue #
  • @allonsdanser @christiepooh You are both en route to Nashville? #
  • @christiepooh @allonsdanser @RedOxxAffairs Are you only traveling with Red Oxx carry-on? #
  • @allonsdanser I use Preview in my Mac and GoodReader on my iP*d to mark up PDFs #phdchat #
  • @DrGarcia @maedez Enjoy the trip and visit! #
  • @christiepooh @allonsdanser @RedOxxAffairs I wish Red Oxx would have more social media presence; as if they are trying to keep it a secret! #
  • @allonsdanser I know there are ways to output the #skim notes, but hard that it becomes 2 files #phdchat #
  • @allonsdanser You know, I tried #Skim though was not impressed at all that the notes are not saved and viewable elsewhere #phdchat #
  • @allonsdanser @christiepooh I can't wait to use all their things when I go to the UK in Sept; hope @RedOxxAffairs appreciates my review! #
  • @JeffRamosPR @salma_patel Agreed, meaning not communication channels work for everybody. #
  • George R. R. Martin has 4 different books on the NYTimes Best Seller lists including #1 for Fiction hardcover, e-book, and mass market paper #
  • @continental @United Wonderful experience with Continental support; system asked if I wanted a call back, and gave me its exact time first. #
  • @sarahthesheepu 😉 #
  • @sarahthesheepu Nothing like making a strategic purpose for far far far into the future! #
  • Am very thankful for the responses I have received regarding my study and have a few more channels to explore #phdchat #
  • I just finished revising the verbiage to use with my requests for additional research participants #phdchat #
  • I just received an email from #Continental Airlines that some aspects of my flights in September just changed. #
  • @qui_oui I also wish the buttons to clear read Tweets were a little larger. #
  • @qui_oui Good to know TweetDeck uses Boolean operators. Wish they made that aspect a bit simpler. #
  • I wish I could scroll around TweetDeck using the Mac scroll functions. #
  • @qui_oui Great suggestion! Thanks; will try that and report back. #
  • @qui_oui Well, TweetDeck used to work better; in the last month or so, it seems to be missing things. What do you use to read Tweets? #
  • @SarahStewart @witty_knitter Good question about how this is being used. Never really thought about tracking that usage. #
  • @Eingang Look forward to hearing what you come up with. #
  • @ianrobsons @JaneDavis13 You have seen the SI journal itself from the SSSI along the way? #phdchat #
  • @kiwicito No, that is quite good timing. Kudos to making sense of all of it #phdchat #
  • @GabrielOguda Well, take care with your travel' may the data be worth all the efforts! #phdchat #
  • @GabrielOguda DOes your data collection have to be in person? #phdchat #
  • @lizith @ai1sa I had too much driving to do last night; very little wine was in the cards, alas. #
  • @thesiswhisperer What are your workshops about? #
  • @kiwicito Congrats on wrapping up that step; quite quickly realized, it seems! #phdchat #
  • @qui_oui I wish for the old TweetDeck; this new version misses many mentions. #
  • @antoesp Thank you so much for your future offer. I hope to be finished by data collection by then, though stranger things have happened!! #
  • @lindathestar I find that achieving #InboxZero is more about the "slow and steady" than the major goals for the month. #
  • @salma_patel @JeffRamosPR I was thinking more about those with cognitive and functional impairments such as many in the geriatric population #

  • @hautenegro @daciatakesnote Thanks for the reTweet! #
  • @EvilSue @researchwhisper @BioScienceMum I thrive with the asynchronous chat, as #phdchat happens in the afternoon when I am at work. #

Invitation to Participate in a Research Study

Today I begin data collection for my doctoral thesis research at Lancaster University, and I invite you to consider participating in my study. I have all this information, along with the ethical consent form, in a permanent link on my Doctoral (Thesis) Research page on my website.

There are 3 criteria for participation:

1.  Are you doctoral student or have you completed a doctoral degree (in any discipline, with any type of doctoral degree, anywhere in the world)?

2.  Have you encountered any thresholds or had any troublesome experiences while engaged in your degree that left you with a new sense of your discipline or identity of yourself as a researcher / evidence-supported expert practitioner? Perhaps you experienced an aha! along the way? How about a transformed understanding or perspective?

3.  Did you engage in any aspect of your studies from a distance, online, or using any form of technology while engaging in your doctoral degree?

If you answered yes to these 3 eligibility criteria, I invite you to consider speaking with me about it in a single 60-90 minute interview (phone or Skype, as you wish). For more information, my email and contact information are here.

I appreciate any assistance with identifying participants for my study; please share this link or information with anybody who you think may be interested. Thank you.

  • @ElenaGol86 How did you come across it? #
  • @litreviewhq Agreed, and will look forward to reading about it! #phdchat #
  • @savasavasava Exactly the same with me. I have been confirming next week's appointment with #TimeWarner every day for a week. #
  • @qui_oui Alas, I hate that good 'ol boys club. #
  • @SarahStewart It is moving along nicely. I just got approval to begin data collection, so about to start asking for people / suggestion. #
  • @SarahStewart @davidwees While not writing my thesis on my blog, it is fully integrated into my research #phdchat #
  • @NSRiazat @jessgrieser @jennacondie @lizith I like #Scrivener though it still has an awkward feel. I do write and take notes in it #phdchat #
  • With all the nifty search engines out there, is a hash tag # still needed to follow things on Twitter? #phdchat #highered #
  • @naomi_jacobs @jennacondie @NSRiazat @jessgrieser Agreed. I like #scrivener though it does have a high learning curve #phdchat #
  • @NSRiazat @jessgrieser @jennacondie What is Twitterfall? #phdchat #

  • @eoinomahony You have any strategies for doing this that you can share? #phdchat #
  • @litreviewhq Any strategies for combining concepts found in the literature that you can share? #phdchat Wondering about process issues here #
  • @litreviewhq Still combining concepts in my mind, though not with article notes yet. As always, am drowning in reading #phdchat #
  • @klbz Interesting idea. Seems related to my area of research – #phdchat #
  • @robinyap Thanks for the encouragement; I can use as much as I can get! #
  • @dmcordell What acquinated you with the East Village? #

  • Enjoying a fantastic, multi-course fondue dinner with a colleague in the East Village. #
  • I made some good progress on my literature review yesterday. Part of this is the way I am beginning to be able to combine concepts #phdchat #
  • @katmduffy Alas, I can relate about the same issue. #
  • @stealthpooch May be some interesting frames to blur together. How do you determine whose voice & reality to focus on? #phdchat #
  • @LR Wish I could have been there with a nice Chianti. Alas, where isn't a nice Chianti welcome?!?! #
  • @savasavasava Goodness. Or not. #
  • @LR At least they don't ask you to serve them pizza while singing opera . . . or do they?! #
  • @stealthpooch Seems interesting, and somewhat out of my area. Can you share an example of one of these? #phdchat #
  • @aephd Hopefully more work in a good and productive way! #phdchat #
  • @savasavasava What are you considering? #

  • @aephd Another degree like "Wow, let's study this!" or "Good god, more work!" ? #phdchat #
  • @keredm No better time than the present #phdchat #
  • @stealthpooch What collection are you critiquing? #phdchat #
  • @martin_eve @qui_oui Well, welcome back! #
  • @savasavasava 😉 #
  • @salma_patel Comgrats on that act of kindness she did for you #phdchat #
  • @webnemesis Appreciate it! #phdchat #
  • @gconole @andycoverdale @cristinacost Alas, in another time and place I researched this in #HRD #phdchat #
  • @mark_carrigan @C_J_Cage Alas, I am going to need to consider this more seriously. I wish it were less expensive, but we'll see! #phdchat #
  • @lindathestar It may come sooner than you think 😉 #phdchat #
  • @gconole There were so many issues that arose, that I could not get any side work done. Alas. #
  • @dbaQ8 @christiepooh @GabrielOguda @BronSt Thank you for the encouragement and energy for the next step #phdchat #
  • Ready for data collection, finally! Thank you for all your support along the way #
  • At a break in the middle of a 3 1/2 hour webinar I am hosting today. #
  • @gconole @cristinacost Goodness, sounds like the theory may be broken if it is that tough to apply. #
  • @imarais Wow, that is a high target! Why so much? #phdchat #
  • I have an early morning (for me) supervision call coming up. Want to make it to the office first.#phdchat #
  • @webnemesis This seems like a threshold concept, which is related to my thesis topic #phdchat #
  • @C_J_Cage @mark_carrigan Alas, I am about to begin collecting data and am not looking forward to the transcription issue #phdchat #
  • @AndyRKett I agree; in this sense splitting them may have been more for money than content and flow. #
  • @mark_carrigan I find about $100 for an hour of interview (with 2 people speaking clearly and without a lot of technical content) #phdchat #
  • @ASBO_Allstar Congrats on the next step forward #phdchat #
  • @martin_eve Very sorry to hear about your loss. Saying "just" a pet seems to minimize his importance. At least it happened in relative peace #
  • @ElenaGol86 Same here; never attended #CHER but also heard good things. Perhaps I will follow you into #ECHER What made you want to join? #
  • @AndyRKett SO, I enjoyed Harry Potter. There were a few surprisingly slow parts, and it did start without any context. Odd for a big movie. #
  • @olearymo @alexbowe No, that was Star Wars. #
  • @savasavasava Wish I knew you were there; i would have joined you! #
