Once upon a time, which is actually not that long ago (September 2018), a lecturer from Cumbria was awarded a prize for creativity in education from a highly respected and reputable organisation. This came as a complete surprise to the lecturer, who really didn’t think she had done anything that special or new or important. Truth be told, this particular lecturer tends to dwell on things she hasn’t done so well and attempt to do them better next time. It left her pondering, what is special, new, important? To whom? And how had she got to this point, where other people thought that what she did was these things? To her it was just what she did naturally, her way of doing things, all part of living in what her husband refers to as ‘Tracy’s World’… And what her dog, aka Maisy the Rotten Russell considers a distraction from going on walkies… I’m going to leave the story here for now, as I don’t yet have the answers to those questions and I’m going to do my best to explain how I got to this point – and hopefully to pass on some tips for surviving - and thriving - a PhD.
