This is a little project that my friend Akshika and I brought forward with the support of The Open University. In this video, we talk about the things we wish we had known before starting our PhD journey. Are you a PhD student or are you planning to start soon? Give it a look.
Going through the final stages of your PhD? No worries! We’ve got you covered. In this episode, I invited Dr Eduardo Frias-Anaya, who defended his thesis two weeks ago, at the Open University in the UK, to talk about the final stages of a PhD. We talk about writing up a dissertation, preparation to the […]
Have you thought of doing a PhD, you are currently doing or you have finished? I have. It’s painful and rewarding. In this episode, I talk with Dr Tina Papathoma, a post-doctoral researcher in Technology Enhanced Learning, about the PhD journey and the impact it has on us. We talk about the PhD process, submission and viva in an honest discussion of a 4 years journey.
A fellow researcher (Tina Papathoma) asked me to record a video in which I discuss my experience with the writing and defending my PhD thesis. She presented it to the “How to finish your PhD thesis and successfully defend it” workshop at the 15th EATEL Summer School on Technology Enhanced Learning (JTELSS 2019) which took place on […]
Being able to rapidly recognise new research trends is strategic for many stakeholders, including universities, institutional funding bodies, academic publishers and companies. The literature presents several approaches to identifying the emergence of new research topics, which rely on the assumption that the topic is already exhibiting a certain degree of popularity and consistently referred to by a community of researchers. However, detecting the emergence of a new research area at an embryonic stage, i.e., before the topic has been consistently labelled by a community of researchers and associated with a number of publications, is still an open challenge.
