Week 37

My probation review meeting was postponed to October because the panel is too busy this month, which is painful for me! This means that I have more time to prepare for it, but my nervousness never slackens and has rather grown.

My preparation includes:

  1. reading my documents thoroughly (research protocol, one chapter, ethics application and field notes);
  2. creating a summary of my research and preliminary findings which I will give to the panel orally; and
  3. preparing responses to questions ranging from general to specific questions.

 

My goals for Week 38:

  • Continue my preparation and practice!
  • Share transcribed conversation notes from my fieldwork with my supervisors
