Video: PhD Surgery with Tara Brabazon | Video | Times Higher Education

Clipped from:

Welcome to the Times Higher Education PhD surgery with Tara Brabazon, professor of education at Charles Sturt University, Australia.

An expert on doctorial education, Professor Brabazon’s articles for THE, including 10 truths a PhD supervisor will never tell you and How not to write a PhD thesis have been read hundreds of thousands of times, so we asked her to expand on the issues in a series of videos.
The questions that she answers in the short videos that follow were sourced from PhD candidates via the @timeshighered twitter feed. We hope you find them useful.
