If you read through any handful of posts on Viva Survivors you’ll come across a reflection. With the work that I do supporting postgraduate researchers – and having done this for a very long time now – I like to reflect, look for patterns, look for connections and try to find interesting ways to explore what the viva is all about.
- Framing Limitations – a few thoughts on how research is necessarily done.
- Five Big Viva Mistakes – and five simple ways to fix them.
- Measuring Up – a little slice of life that’s also all about expectations for the viva.
- Flaws & Problems – the difference between the two!
- Viva Views – a series of statements about what the viva really means.
You’ll read many more reflections on the viva, viva prep and everything related in 2024 – but tomorrow look out for my favourite short posts of 2023.
