What do you think of a PhD? Just another academic degree? That’s what many people think when they see PhD on someone’s CV, implying somewhat an ignorance on their part. A PhD is not just a degree similar to an undergraduate degree where students take lectures for a few years to learn various subjects.
Next time when you see PhD on someone’s CV, know that they are actually highlighting a full time job - yes, you read it correct - a full-time
Job as a researcher. A PhD in Indian University’s takes on 5 -7 years to complete meaning a research work experience of anywhere between 5-6 years. Experience that comes from a lot of working hours, collaborations, meetings, rejections, and many more ups and downs. In many cases, they go through much more than a typical like 10-5 jobs.
Having said that, it doesn’t mean that every PhD holder is as ready as the other one, right after graduating. But, this is exactly the same in any other field, where people have to learn many skills on the job, gaining more experience over the years.
So whether you are in academia or industry, when you have an applicant with a PhD on their CV, please do not reject their applications because they do not have experience.
That’s my opinion. What do you think? Is PhD a work experience?…😎

The good PhD enables the researcher to acquire knowledge and skills that qualified him to a higher level or degree of scientific personality or self actualization

Hi, I'm currently carrying out research on the various techniques that can be used to support reverse mentoring in higher education.

Answer
In my experience Mentors almost always take on the stance of knowing everything from their experience and giving advice to the mentee in that direction. In my view all mentors should be trained in coaching techniques (but few are) so they can help the mentee find their own solutions and only impart guidance (preferably ideas for consideration) when the mentee is stuck. If the mentor is not in a mindset where they want to learn too (including from the mentee) and forego their ego, outcomes will be less than the best it could have been.

Hello all,
As most or probably all of you who teach lectures–besides conducting research–we have been working away from students. My question is, what platform are you using for online lectures?
I am using Google Classroom for organizing work, but don't know how to give an actual (video) class where students can join live and ask questions, etc.
I have never liked relying on PowerPoint presentations so most of my lectures are on the actual whiteboard, just supported by a few slides when charts need to be shown, so I basically wanted to continue with live classes.
Will I have to record videos? Or, is there a live platform that performs well and 20-25 students can join in? Preferably that I can see them too. Is that too much to ask given the circumstances i.e., with a MacBook, a videocamera and home internet? I have applied for a Cisco Webex account but given the demand it will take some time and I don't know if students will be able to use it.
Any help?

I want to know if I am trying to do a 2 stage mendelian randomization. Using R software with the mendeliazation package,
Since using a logistic regression the snp does not have a significant p value with the outcome Mi but with a Cox proportional model it does. How then can I find a causal effect or effect size of the exposure on the outcome.
My lecture said I could divide the coef of the log hazard of the snp to the outcome from the Cox by the coefficient of the linear regression of the snp and the exposure to get my effect size. I still didn't understand how I could that.
Also when I went ahead to use the predict model to get unconfounding values for hdl and ldl, I realised that when regressed the uncounfounded model on the other outcome, I got 6 but when I did the coef of the log ( snp_ outcome effect) divided by the coefficient of the linear model (snp_ exposure effect) I got 0.069.
I have been finding it difficult to reconcile these two.

I had noticed that many universities are showing intrests in previous or 1st degree CGPA while hiring a masters or PhD candidate. But they dont show interest to interview the students with low CGPA but with high potential to handle a research. There are so many talented students who are looking for a M.Sc or PhD full scholarships with an excellent grade for their final year research thesis but with a decent CGPA. Also those students have the potential to face the postgraduate studies. Though they are not offered a scholarship which is hard to accept. If they are given a right opportunity definitely they will prove them selves to this world. In my opinion CGPA is decided by the lecturers itself. So why dont universities interview students with high potential while offering a placement?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Lizny Jaufer, Since Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is an indicator of a student's overall academic performance, most of the universities in the world show interest in high CGPA while hiring a masters' or PhD candidate.
You are right that sometimes the students not having high CGPA may have high potential to do research. But the universities don't offer them scholarships for their postgraduate studies. Even in many universities of Bangladesh, students who are very interested to do a thesis at their Master's level and are really talented in research, are not allowed to take thesis because of their low CGPA in the previous exams. CGPA is the only criterion to select the students in the thesis group.
Actually, interests and capacities to do research should be considered and these research-talented students should also be awarded scholarships while hiring a master's or PhD candidate.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr. Sajad Mohammadi ,
the eminent physicist, Wolfgang Pauli, used to say, “God made the bulk; the surface was invented by the devil.” Pauli explained that the diabolical characteristic of surfaces was due to the simple fact that a solid surface shares its border with the external world. Inside the solid, each atom is surrounded by other similar atoms. Surface atoms may interact either with other atoms from the same surface, or with atoms located just below or just above it, or with atoms located beyond it.

I am in the process of making my research for my final, and I am actually confused after I finish my pilot study. So the thing is my lecturer recommended I use SPSS for my pilot study, and I can run my big data with PLS-SEM. Does anyone know what is the reason for using SPSS for the pilot study and not PLS-SEM for both? I've been asking google but seems no one give me an answer yet. Really appreciate your help in giving me the reason for using SPSS rather than PLS for my pilot study. Thank you.
ps: my sample for my pilot study is 42
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Elita Ulinnuha Uzlifatul Jannah the use of SPSS or PLS depends on what you want to do in your pilot testing? Normally the purpose of pilot testing for a graduate research student is to check for internal consistency/reliability of the measures he/she is using for the latent constructs through a small sample like you have (i.e., 42). Checking just for reliability is acceptable in pilot testing because the data you will use for pilot testing cannot be included in the main study analysis. Furthermore, dataset with 42 responses is definitely not enough for any type of PLS testing, either for Measurement Model or Structural Model analysis. It is because of the statistical power and minimum sample size requirements for conducting SEM analysis.
Your advisor might have suggested you using SPSS for pilot testing for reasons stated above. If you are using well established measures for your study, I think Pre-Testing is more important than pilot testing with such a small dataset. Tq.

What justification do universities have for re-evaluating peer-reviewed and published publications prior to promoting lecturers?
Relevant answer
Answer
One of the reasons is most likely the fact that not every paper is published according to the same scientific standards. I am immediately thinking about predatory journals. These are journals that are suspected not to follow the proper standards (like proper peer review).
If a candidate has a list of publications where a significant number of the journals where these papers are published in are potentially predatory (for example the journal or the publisher is mentioned in the Beall’s list (https://beallslist.net/standalone-journals/or https://beallslist.net/ respectively) then I can imagine that the evaluation committee will have a closer look to the individual papers. Since a paper in a suspect journal is not automatically of poor quality.

For Action Research through the famer field schools (FFS) approach to learning conservation agriculture, initiated by the FAO.
The principle of the Farmers' Field School is to create a place of exchange and learning where producers learn as a group on their own through observation and exchange. The Global Good Practices Initiative aims to make information and know-how on extension easily accessible to a wide audience of practitioners.
KEY PRINCIPLES OF FFS
1. Learning by doing - adults learn best by practical experience than through passive listening during lessons lectures or demonstrations.
2. Each CEP is unique with regard to its content: they are farmers who decide what is relevant to them and what should address CEPs.
3. Learning from error - everyone's experience of reality is unique and valid.
4. Learning to learn - farmers strengthen their capacities to observe, analyze and make informed decisions.
5. Asking problems / finding solutions - the problems are presented as challenges and not as constraints.
6. Field schools are the learning ground - the field - a the agricultural or livestock system is the main learning tool.
7. Agricultural advisers are facilitators, not teachers - because their role is to guide the learning process.
8. There is strength - as a group, farmers have more power than individual producers.
9. All CEPs follow a systematic training process - the key steps are observation, group discussion, analysis, decision making and action planning
In a typical FFS, a group of 20 to 25 farmers meet once a week in a field and under the guidance of a trained facilitator. In sub-groups of five, they observe and compare two plots over the course of an entire agricultural campaign. One plot follows conventional local methods while the other is used to experiment with what might be considered "best practices". They experiment and observe key elements of the agro-ecosystem by measuring plant development, taking samples of insects, weeds and diseased plants, conducting simple cage trials, or comparing the characteristics of different plants, soils. At the end of the weekly meeting, they present their findings in a plenary session, followed by discussion and planning for the weeks ahead. Alternative practices are not assumed to be automatically superior to conventional practices. It's up to the farmers to decide what works best through their trials and observations. FFS is about providing a risk-free environment in which to discuss, dissect, modify and experiment with new ideas for natural resource management in general. Within this framework, farmers are able to study a wide range of subjects, such as integrated management of soil fertility, conservation agriculture, management of hydraulic or water resources, variety selection methods. local and seed quality issues; the risks associated with toxic pesticides and the implementation of low-toxic alternatives; developing marketing skills; and the diversification of agricultural production systems with new crops for food, fodder and profitability. Nationally and regionally, the list of topics continues to expand. The "learning by doing" approach encourages farm-oriented experimentation, group organization and decision-making, increasing the likelihood that farmers will eventually "own" and adopt the improved practices. At the end of the season, a typical FFS group organizes a field day to show local politicians, government agricultural officials and other farmers what they are doing. Exchange visits with other FFS are also encouraged. The season-long approach helps develop stronger social bonds that continue after the initial FFS. Not all topics can be covered in one season, and FFS groups often continue with new topics and activities in subsequent years. Exploring past trends, the current state, and future scenarios allows groups to prioritize needs, interests and actions for the future. National FFS programs are more than just a collection of FFS. They generally operate at different scales to develop social capital, for example by enabling the strengthening of producer organizations and contributing to greater organizational capacity across the entire value chain - from finance, post-harvest processing and production, marketing to investments. National FFS programs are starting to work in concert with other participatory community initiatives, including community listeners' clubs.

the meditation sessions are similar to any other training programs containing lectures, discussions, and practicing, etc.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Aamer,
If you are limited by class size, there is always an option of collating data from a few classes before doing your analysis. But I would think most meditation classes would be between 12-20 to be effective, especially when you require participants to discuss and practice apart from the education part.
The last one I did was on a large group of online meditation course participants, but the course has no group discussion part, so I was able to have a larger class size, and I gathered data from N = 47 which, though small, was sufficient for me to run all the required analyses.
Good luck with yours.

IM: A wave brings in the amplitude paradigm, important as we see in a simple beach. A particle is a localized vibration. For particles, what is important is the frequency, like in the photoelectric effect..
Experimentally, this and other particle properties of photons win, the wave properties lose. The Maxwell Equations (ME) represent the wave properties, only. Photon spin is the particle description of light polarization, where spin +1 and spin −1 represent two opposite directions of circular polarization. Thus, light of a defined circular polarization consists of photons with the same spin, either all +1 or all −1.
Stimulated emission, and its coherence, are the foundations of the laser, and are not represented in the ME, even when represented by relativistic equations for the field strength tensor, with B and E using the same units. There are other examples, like diamagnetism

Understanding molecular simulations (Frenkel)
Molecular modelling (Leach)
Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics (Greiner)
When you have the theoretical tools, you need the practical ones. This mainly means finding a software which is able to run simulations of your system of interest, depending also on the hardware available. GROMACS, CHARMM, LAMPS are common examples of MD software. You have to decide what to use and install it if not already available to you.
Next, and arguably most important step, is setting up your starting systems, which roughly reduces to choosing a force field. What system are you interested in? What molecules? What timescales? Is the force field implemented in the MD software you are using?
At this point you will be able to start running simulations about your system of interest.
There is no general answer to these questions. Some software is better than another in certain aspects, or supports a force field that you need while others don't. Similarly, some force fields work better for some properties/molecules/systems than others. Maybe you are looking to be fast, and therefore are looking to coarse grained or united atoms systems.
A 'must do' is looking in the given field and understand what has been done and what is the common procedure to do it. If you are interested into binding properties of some ligand, then read relevant literature about it, maybe something has already been done with your ligand of interest. What software are they using? What force field? What properties do they measure? Once you have an idea, install and get experience with that software. For example, for GROMACS do some of these tutorials (first one always plus other relevant to you)
I use GROMACS as an example because that's what I work with, but CHARMM, LAMPS etc are available and you will for sure find many tutorials online. Once you are familiar with the software, find some fundamental work in the literature that is achievable and try to reproduce it, so that you get experience with a system similar to yours and with the sampling procedures you also will need.
Hope this helps,
Nicola

A friend of mine is conducting a study on "Principals' managerial skills and School effectiveness". The dependent variable of the study is school effectiveness. The researcher intends to find out whether the following managerial skills - Communication, decision-making, and supervisory skills correlate with school effectiveness. School effectiveness was measured as a product of teachers', students' and administrators' effectiveness. For considering teachers, students, and principals themselves in the dependent variable, the researcher states that the "population of his study comprised 810 school leaders (270 principals and 540 principals), 2,5763 teachers and 13,890 students. From this population, 10 per cent each of principals, teachers and students were selected at random for the study. Is there anything wrong with the population? A lecturer who is not even the supervisor said it's wrong, but I felt he was right since teachers, students and school administrators are taking part in the study. The lecturer said the population has to be unitary, and as such, all the secondary schools should rather be used.
The idea of this lecturer about population choice has affected many students' theses. Thus, I decided to bring this topic here up to get the opinions of other experts regarding the choice of population.

Spectrometry plays a crucial role in chemical analysis. Thus, spectrometry — absorption or emission, atomic or molecular— receives much attention in undergraduate courses at universities.
Teaching dispersive spectrometric chemical analysis seems to follow a defined pattern:
We (professors/lecturer/instructors) introduce the behavior of individual elements (e.g., sources, monochromators, detectors).
Sometimes, we show how a group of parts perform (e.g., when teaching the behavior of a monochromator with its slits, mirrors, lenses, diffraction gratings, and/or prisms).
We propose to understand the operation of the spectrometer as a whole (i.e., holistic behavior) from the behavior of the elements.
Is that bottom-up educational strategy the only option to teach how a dispersive spectrometer works? What do you think?
Relevant answer
Answer
I don't (classroom) teach, but I always found the original prism experiments of Newton fascinating, leading to the observations of the dark lines in the solar spectrum (absorption spectroscopy) and the sharp emission lines of candescent sources (emission spectroscopy) ultimately leading to quantum theory!

If I am doing a Mixed Method approach, Can I start the research by doing a questionnaire with students followed by interviews with lecturers ? or should I only do the interviews with students?
Relevant answer
Answer
You could do a mixed-methods sequential explanatory design with teachers of the students in your original sample. There is nothing about this design that requires the same sample in the follow-up sample as in the original sample. As always, however, you would need to have strong reasons for doing this that correspond to your research goals.
An alternative to the sequential explanatory design would be a convergent design, where each sample answered a separate interview. The main issue that arises in this design is the integration of the results. So, you would need to have solid connections between the content of the two interview guides.

I think this is an important question regarding the system design and implementation using FPGAs. The FPFAs contain what is called block ram that can be used as internal memory on the chip. IN case of Memory intensive applications one may an extremal memory. Sure the external memory may take relatively long time to access compared to the block ram which can be made to neighbor the processing block. So, the block ram may function as a cash memory for the local processors. As said before only the data which would be accessed much fewer times can be sent to the off chip memory. It is similar to the cash memory and external memory of the microprocessors.

The methods of information exchanging at different studying levels maybe not clear understanding by some teachers or lecturers. I would like to discuss some notes about what are the allowable or reasonable direction of talk and information exchanging or communication that may be occurred between the lecturer and the students at the university level that relates to studying requirements during the studying years.
Because of that lecture’s students are adults so in some times the lecture tries to make a discussion about some topics related to the field of study. This discussion may be represented as a bidirectional arrow as shown in figure 1. Since this kind of communication is important especially for students to gain experience and it is the best way to allow them to improve their skills. The examination date, curriculum, questions types, and scientific references are decided by the teacher as indicated by one direction arrow. It is better to let the students write the exam subjects schedule and this case indicated as a one direction arrow oriented from the students.
Nowadays new method of learning was added to conventional attendance education which is Online education. Because of the flexibility in this kind of learning that may be done at any time in the day, in the morning, or even in the evening. So it is better to be careful in dealing with this new situation.
In my opinion and from the experience and observation, I expect it to be the best that there are some subjects like lecture time or examination time must be decided only from the teacher or lecturer and do not make this kind of decision taken from the students. The reason for saying that it is not logical to ask each student about a suitable time for him or her.
In summary, for competition and skill development it is very common to share a discussion or any knowledge with students but in other cases like fixing the exam date or the time of the lecture, so trying to get a single word from any group of students may be a waste of time or maybe wrong decision that will affect in a negative manner on the students.
Relevant answer
Answer
I completely agree with your opinion. However, the covid-19 pandemics dramatically changed and still changing the way of teaching and knowledge transfer in all the levels of education. A few years ago it was impossible in some countries to introduce the learning on distance or on line teaching. Now due to epidemiological measures, i.e. lock-down(s) it is impossible to realize curricula of every module or subject during the academic or school year. Most of academic staff and teachers in secondary preparatory schools changed their usual teaching methods over the night. Some successfully, some bad, but the students and their future employers are those who will judge very soon, according to competences of their employees who're studying at the moment, is this transformation successful or unsuccessful. The French have a very nice word for education, the French term for education is formation. That is also one very important role of every educational system, particularly this is one of the most important roles of Academia. Namely, one of the most important roles of Academia is not just to develop the competences and skills of the students, but also formation of future intellectual, regardless of branch and discipline of his/hers study. Nevertheless, considering the modern education and tendency of "learning for life" which means, development of only "necessary" skills and competences, I wonder is it development of real intellectual competences desirable in modern education or we have a trend of education without formation of complete intellectual personality? If yes, this is the end of every dialogue, discussion(s), whatever, because the highly qualified bank officers, clerks in public offices, teachers, engineers and doctors will do just what is requested from them from their employers or governments and that's very, very dangerous for the future of global civilization.

We are investigating the impact of online learning environment on sustained attention and student engagement among undergraduate students (Year 1-3).
We had the participants watch a lecture video and answer multiple choice questions related to the content of the video. We also had them fill an engagement questionnaire which had questions about their involvement with peers and various university related activities.
Hypothesis I - 1st year students are able to focus more over a long period of time than 2nd and 3rd year students.
Hypothesis II - 1st year students actively participate and are more engaged with peers than 2nd and 3rd year students.
My questions are:
1. What statistical test would be most appropriate?
2. How do I set a value to prove significance...for example they had 13 MCQ questions, how do I know what number of questions they need to have answered correctly in order to say they paid more attention?

Are you familiar with the expression, "getting the cart before the horse"? I'm afraid that's what you're facing. If so, that's not an impossible situation, but it can be a daunting one. Deciding what statistical analysis you will use is normally part of the research design, so you are sure that the data you gather can be analyzed in a way that will answer your research questions. that is normally done before you begin any data collection. I agree with what MOST of the others have recommended, but you cannot apply ANOVA, for example, unless you have quantitative data, and you did not describe the data you received from the surveys. If you solicited qualitative answers to the survey questions, you cannot apply quantitative statistical analysis to it. You will have to quantify that data or apply qualitative data analysis methods to it and have a blended study. There is nothing wrong with having a blended study, but is is more complex than a qualitative or quantitative one. You may need someone on site who can actually see what you did to help you sort it out. I wish I were there! I'd love the challenge!

In this experiment, students will modify the surface of the one, two and five euro cent coins that are made of copper, through a series of chemical reactions. The reactions that will take place on the surface will lead to a change in color.
The color variation, a macroscopic modification, will be related to the microscopic modifications of the composition and structure of the materials that are formed, as well as to their final use.
In all this the researcher, if he knows how to transform himself into an alchemist, can achieve good success ...
