Articles Targeted at PhD Research Issues
Doctoral Net Academy, and the Finishing Faster Group give you great step by step content that guides you through the phd dissertation or thesis process. Paid members follow a map which also includes video explanations, checklists and special guidance.
Not everyone learns by reading. Video content is used for "how to" segments and as an overview to important topics, such as, "What makes for a truly outstanding PhD?"
44 weeks a year our free doctoral community meets to discuss key topics of interest to everyone writing a dissertation or thesis. The webaddress for that service is https://www.bigmarker.com/doctoralnet
Short Questions Answered: Two Ways
Do you have a question or a topic about which your are confused? Join us on at the next conference from https://www.bigmarker.com/doctoralnet and get your questions answered. Finishing Faster group members have access to a professor for quick (usually within 12 hours) feedback using skype.
Content Mapped to Self Guided Tracking Process
We find that doctoral students finish faster and with greater ease and assurance when they are following a map through the process. The DNA paid membership self guided process takes the confusion out of your work. Clicking on the map leads you to just the right help, perfectly timed, all the way through the process of developing, writing, doing research and finishing your doctoral dissertation or thesis.
Ancillary Checklists, Videos, and Presentations
Paid members have access to better content and more complete explanations throughout the dissertation or thesis process. Checklists help you sign off for yourself as to whether your work is meeting rigorous standards of completion.
Finishing faster members can request to be able to recruit a writing buddy - someone else at about the same place in the process with whom they can share writing and feedback. You don't have to feel like you are left out in the cold during the dissertation and thesis process. Writing buddies help you increase your critical analysis about your writing and the research process.
Lifetime DNA Content Access
Finishing faster is a group concept set up to give you the help you need all the way through the rest of your process. Pay for six months and have lifetime access to the content on the site, and to getting your questions answered quickly.
Finishing Faster Forums
Finishing Faster Group members enjoy private forums allow you to ask any question you want with no possibility of recrimination from others at your university or within your personal sphere of research. Our Finishing faster members also use the forums as an aid to weekly accountability. Share where you are and where you are going - receive the feedback you need.
Daily Accountability System to Increase Writing
For all paid members at a Finishing faster or higher level, the daily accountability helps keep you on track. Sign in and note what you have done in your 15 minutes or more a day and see how fast the work takes off.
One Hour Consultation
One hour of consultation with an expert can make all the difference in getting you past the challenges or confusion you face. These are by appointment, and take place using skype at a time convenient to both parties.
Direct Instruction in PhD Organization, Research Design, Analysis
Sometimes we just need a series of lectures and discussions to help us understand both the larger context of research and the specifics of how we are expected to write it up. Using web-based technologies, and depending on which service is being paid for, DoctoralNet professors share presentations, show how to do the work by sharing their screens (or yours), read writing and give feedback - all in the course of the learning experience.
Weekend Mini Retreats
New for 2013, DoctoralNet professors will dedicate full weekends where we will man the conference room 24 hours a day as all participants focus on one issue within dissertation/thesis work. Students will drop in, here the basic ideas and ask questions targeted to their situation. Then they will work in their home environment and come back with ideas or writing to consider. Professors and small groups will give feedback. Participants are allowed to come as often and for as long as they wish as they move ahead on the topic under consideration. January 26th, 27th is our inaugraural weekend and we will focus on "Finding your topic and developing a defensible methodology around it."
Whereever you meet one of our professors you can be assured that the more you explain your situation, the more we can offer personalized feedback and support.
Virtual Lectures and Group Work
DoctoralNet makes the most of web-based synchronous activities. Professors offer lectures on topics that help propel your work, they also may suggest that participants that day split off to work together in smaller groups and that those groups come back to inform the whole. We are, in everyway possible, a classroom without walls or time constraints.
A Month of Research Writing or Process Guidance
There is nothing like a virtual retreat to get your work moving! Whether you are up against a deadline and are concerned about your success, or you have just stalled out for too long, our virtual retreats are proven to be the succesful solution.
Specialized Monthly Content
