Doctoral Dissertation Defense | UIC Graduate College
This video is a copy of my Doctoral Dissertation defense. The topic: Analysis of Twitter Messages for Sentiment and Insight for use in Stock Market Decision Making.
A doctoral dissertation defense is a public presentation that should be practiced before the exam. Ask some people to listen to your speech and correct you if necessary. This way you will decrease the level of stress and will feel more confident when standing in front of your university professors. Think of all possible questions you can get asked and prepare convincing answers.
Video or audio taping of your doctoral dissertation defense will help you to improve the speech and behaviour in the future, especially, if you plan to publish your paper. Consult your advisor regarding the thesis, don’t be shy to ask for a professional opinion, and share your problem that you may face during the writing process.
