My viva voce (by live voice), otherwise known as the doctoral defense, is scheduled for March 25. Time to start my preparation (as if the previous 4 years were not enough!!).
and no, I will NOT be making anything up!
I want to share that Thursday morning, January 10, 2013, was the day that I submitted my doctoral thesis. More years in the making than it may seem by my four years at Lancaster University, I am happy that this step is now complete.
It is now being printed and bound to send to the [...]
I have been Tweeting about this recently, though decided a quick check-in here is well overdue. This is the news I have been working for — I completed the final draft of my doctoral thesis today!
No, not submitted yet. Tomorrow I need to format and proof it one last time, then to my supervisor [...]
I am happy to say I have just completed the analysis of my data for my doctoral thesis!

I am happy to share the video of my recent Research Seminar presentation, where I discussed my doctoral thesis research in progress.
If you ever want to get feedback and suggestions about your own research I cannot recommend this sort of opportunity highly enough. In many ways, this [...]
I am presenting my doctoral thesis research in progress at my department’s Seminar Series. I often attend the Department of Educational Research seminars from a distance, though this will be the first time I have presented at one.
While this has been a great opportunity to help me focus my writing and make some solid [...]
Borrowing a not-so-clever allusion to Hamlet from the Great Bard himself, yet without the anger and other baggage he brings (!!), I am now turning my attention to writing the draft chapter of my literature review and conceptual framework. I set myself another ambitious goal, this time to have this section drafted in two weeks. [...]
After working with the transcription for my doctoral thesis, I have found creating the structural outline for the entire write-up to be the greatest challenge.
