This Learning Café is dedicated to those that are approaching the Viva and would like to learn on how to prepare for it.
The Learning Café will provide an open floor for discussion about the more obvious, and the less obvious aspects of what to consider and prepare for during the Viva. The Viva is a 'Make it or break it' event - so it's perhaps also worth it to reflect on how you as a person react in 'break it' situations.
The DoctorateHub team have asked Jacqueline Hiddlestone to chair the session, drawing on her own experience as a scholar-practitioner that has been through the Viva..
The Learning Café will take place at 12.00noon GMT / UK time and we look forward to a lively discussion.
So make sure you register to get the link, grab a coffee or social drink and join in on our next online Learning Café.

Jacqueline takes the approach of learning together where the art of conversation is but one vital learning tool. With online and virtual meetings increasing throughout these unusual times, group discussions help disseminate knowledge through shared experience and pragmatic dialogue; as well as checking in that we are each OK. To quote Randolph Bourne: 'A good discussion increases the dimensions of everyone who takes part.'
With over 30 years in the private, public and academic sectors, Jacqueline combines academic endeavours with practice. She has covering strategy development through to operational delivery, compliance and regulation, seeking to apply her learnings in each organisation she’s worked in or on, across volunteering, academia and Board roles. In combining academia with depth of practical application, Jacqueline has drawn on her various qualifications to enhance her experience and improve her business document and report writing to Board level and publishing.
Jacqueline is currently completing her Doctorate of Business Administration based on an action learning approach as part of her ongoing scholar-practitioner learning. She has published in peer-reviewed journals, presented conference papers, and provided peer reviews for both; along with being a co-chair for the strategy track of the Strategy Special Interest Group at the British Academy of Management. Jacqueline is currently combining her strategy to operations delivery consulting with teaching undergraduate and masters subjects at various universities, as well as recently developing and delivering a case-study masters level subject.
