NEWS - One of Dr. Trakulphadetkrai's doctoral students presented her research at the British Educational Research Association (BERA) conference
One of Dr. Trakulphadetkrai's doctoral students presented her research at the British Educational Research Association (BERA) conference, which was held between 10 and 12 September 2019 at the University of Manchester.
Fatemah Almuwaiziri (a final-year PhD student) gave a presentation, titled ‘Can self-constructed visualisation (SCV) meet unique mathematics learning needs of students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ADHD?’. Her presentation is based on part of her PhD research which was conducted in special schools in Kuwait. Speaking of her experience in giving her first-ever presentation at an international research conference, Fatemah said:
“It was a great opportunity for me to attend and present my research at an international conference like BERA. I was a little apprehensive about presenting my research to other people, especially not knowing what their opinions of my research and my presentation would be. Having now given the presentation, I found their questions and feedback on my research helped me to refine my research focus and was very useful to improve my doctoral thesis.”
Dr. Trakulphadetkrai commented that:
"It is very important for doctoral students to have some experience in presenting their research to academic audiences at national and international research conferences. While it can be a nerve-racking experience to begin with, the feeling soon becomes one of joy as soon as the presentation is over. I am glad that Fatemah found the experience useful for the development of her doctoral thesis."
