Tips for a PhD defense or viva #phd

Inge de Waard, Ignatia Webs, Jan 20, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Inge de Waard has earned her PhD and by way of celebration she gives us a certifiably useful guide to preparing for your defense (or viva), as it is known in the UK. I found it interesting because it highlights the core interests of the examiners (and by implication, the profession): how do your questions follow from your literature review, what theories guided you, how did you define such-and-such? And some good advice for preparing for a PhD defense.
