Feedback & Participant Testimonials

“Dr Craig J Selby, I want to thank you again for the great session yesterday. The information you provided about being confident and knowledgeable in your research area as you communicate with others who are already established in the field was very helpful. In fact, I applied it today during a meeting with a professor on my committee and the meeting went splendidly.”

Jimmonique / PhD1 - Defending Your Research Proposal

“I am glad that I was part of this webinar on Positionality … I was having (suffering actually) this imposter syndrome and am now confident to position myself somewhere in my research after this evening.”

Margaret / PhD1 - 8.3 Role (Positionality) of the Researcher

“The skills you teach are necessary. You have the perfect diction so I easily follow and understand your lectures even though English is not my native language.”
