Yesterday, I gave some PhD dissertation advice. Today, I will present some tips for PhD candidates ready for public defense.
In Norway, the public defense is a formal event with colleagues, friends, and family present—we typically also stream them on YouTube. The good thing is that when you are ready for the defense, the dissertation has already been accepted. Now it is time to show lecturing skills in the trial lecture and the ability to engage with peers in the disputation.
