This webinar is being presented by Dr Margaret Kiley, co-author of the landmark paper titled ‘It’s a PhD, not a Nobel Prize: How experienced examiners assess research theses’.
In this webinar we will examine issues related to how examiners approach the examination of written doctoral theses and what they are thinking as they make their decisions. We will also consider issues related to the selection of doctoral examiners and how one might prepare for the oral component of the process.
Following this session it is anticipated participants will understand:
· The criteria for the identification of examiners
· How examiners approach the examination of a thesis
· What examiners look for in a good thesis
· What upsets examiners
· How to prepare for the oral component of the examination process.
