Welcome to the first #ProfDockers support session. The following PowerPoint presentation was delivered by Eileen O’Neil to professional doctoral students – in cohort 11 on the 2nd of May 2018. The purpose of the presentation was to support students who are about to embark on their Project Design Development and Management (PDDM) module. I delivered this presentation on my own reflective experience; the question asked of me was “how did the PDDM help ME to develop my thesis”. The following PowerPoint presentation is the advice I would now give to myself if I was starting this module today.

Thanks and well done Eileen for putting such an informative podcast together. While the P.D.D. Module is specific to Glasgow Caledonian University Professional Doctorate students, there are numerous useful hints and tips to help students overcome the many challenges posed by engaging in a research process; i.e. shedding old habits and developing new productive ones. It takes courage to be so open and honest about your experiences; especially, how your felt at the various points. I love your piece on not being afraid of/understanding the plethora of, seemingly, impossible to understand academic terminology – we’ve all been (are still?!) there! “Just their way of holding onto power” – hilarious/brilliant. An outstanding feature of your podcast for me is your story of developing your understanding of the research process and becoming a Doctoral research practitioner. Keep up the great work Eileen – INSPIRATIONAL!
