In the beginning….

So, I’ve recently embarked on this crazy adventure called a PhD.  In all my naivety, I really have no idea what I’m getting myself into.  I guess the optimist in me just thinks it’ll all work itself out in the end.

I was lucky enough to stumble across a MOOC put on by ANU and facilitated by Inger Mewburn, called How to Survive Your PhD.  This course turned out to be the greatest thing for a newbie researcher like myself.  It went through all the emotions that arise from undertaking research and how to best handle them.

There are so many great resources online for researchers, the tricky thing is juggling how much time to spend reading about all the great resources or actually just doing my research…
