Doctoral Studies and the Hats <ul><li>More effective communication between faculty and students </li></ul><ul><li>Clear and focused thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Thinking games for (facilitated?) group discussion and more objective analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Full spectrum of thinking about research (especially emotions!) </li></ul>
    24. 29. <ul><li>Green </li></ul><ul><ul><li>List down at least a dozen topics, areas, industries, problems you may have an interest in researching </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are all the possible issues, angles and dimensions which could emerge from this survey? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are 10 recommendations resulting from this research </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Black & Yellow </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the key problems with arguments I admire?
