Cohort 4 student, Matt Smith attended the Doctoral Consortium on 9th and 10th of July 2020 which took place online due to the pandemic. The event was hosted by Kristina Höök (KTH), Mark Blythe (Northumbria University), and Caroline Hummels (TU/e).

 

Matt says ‘The Doctoral Consortium consisted of going through each of the twelve student attendees’ work, discussing, offering ideas, references, and asking questions about the contributions of the work and next steps. There was also time spent discussing general elements of PhDs and career planning beyond the PhD.

This event was hosted during the Designing Interactive System (DIS) conference. The theme of this conference was “beyond human-centred design” which align exceptionally well with my work. The Doctoral Consortium provided me with contacts (which may already be turning into collaborations), they helped me to reflect on how my PhD is going to constitute a contribution to knowledge, and began the process of considering post-PhD/postdoc opportunities and strategies.’

 

The paper Matt submitted was also put into the companion proceedings, it can be found here:
