Cómo condimentar tu sustentación de tesis

Traducción (muy) libre del post "Como apimentar sua defesa de dissertação ou tese", en www.posgraduando.com

"Las sustentaciones de tesis generalmente son monótonas y estresantes, pero no siempre es necesario que sean así. Mira algunas ideas de cómo "condimentar" tu sustentación y volverla más divertida.

blogs.princeton.edu
1. Comienza con "Señoras y señores, por favor, pongámonos de pie para cantar nuestro Himno Nacional".

2. Continúa con un chiste que comienza por "esto me recuerda una historia: un peruano, un ecuatoriano y un chileno entran a un bar..."

3. Lleva café y cobra 25 céntimos por taza.

4. Describe las partes de tu sustentación de tesis usando una danza interpretativa.

5. Coloca un "VIP" afuera de la sala para desanimar la presencia de ciertos profesores.

6. Presenta tu sustentación de tesis usando títeres.

7. Antes de comenzar tu presentación, vende polos para recuperar el costo de las copias, ploteos, empastado, etc.

8. Después de la sustentación serás un desempleado. Por eso, siéntete en confianza de pasar una cesta de colecta.

9. Responde a preguntas complejas usando mímica.

10. Explica los resultados no significativos con: "esto funcionaría si no fuera por esos niños de %&$@".

11.Ofrece premios en la puerta y haz una rifa. 

12. Pide a los profesores: "Por favor, formule su pregunta en forma de respuesta".

13.Cada 15 minutos, interrumpe la presentación con el anuncio, "y ahora, unas palabras de nuestro patrocinador".

14. Contrata ese dirigible de Goodyear para que dé una vuelta al edificio.

15. Anuncia al jurado que "habrá un pequeño cuestionario después de mi presentación".

16. Dale una bofetada al presidente del jurado y desafíalo a un duelo.

17. Prepara un show para el intermedio.

18. Lleva una mano de esponja gigante que diga "Yo soy el 1º".

19. Si sientes que las cosas no están yendo bien, amenaza con detonar un pequeño dispositivo nuclear en la sala.

20. Muestra imágenes de tus últimas vacaciones.

21. Si los miembros del jurado comienzan a discutir entre sí, dí "ok, todo el mundo apoye la cabeza en la mesa hasta que demuestren que se pueden comportar."

22. Cuanto estés en apuros, empieza a hablar en otros idiomas.

23. Responde cada pregunta con otra pregunta.

24. Distribuye lentes en 3D.

25. Instala una señal electrónica de "Aplausos" y "Risas" en la sala.

PS. Si tienes el coraje de poner en práctica algunos de estos consejos, por favor envíanos un relato de cómo te fue."

Ley 23733 - Ley Universitaria

En divagarquitectura.blogspot.com


Me encontré con esto y me gustó mucho (y me hizo preguntarme una o dos cositas).

Interesante saber qué nos toca dentro de las universidades. No pretendo copiarla toda (es bastante larga y un poco densa), pero sí los primeros puntos, que son interesante. Provecho:

Artículo 1.- Las Universidades están integradas por profesores, estudiantes y graduados. Se dedican al estudio, la investigación, la educación y la difusión del saber y la cultura, y a su extensión y proyección sociales. Tienen autonomía académica, normativa y administrativa dentro de la Ley.

O sea, que los graduados también son parte de las universidades (eso que en Estadus Unidos lleva el pomposo nombre de alumni). Las funciones son clarísimas: estudiar, investigar, educar y difundir... y además resulta que las universidades deberían ayudar a la comunidad. Ejem...

Artículo 2.- Son fines de las Universidades:

Aquí viene lo bueno:

a) Conservar, acrecentar y transmitir la cultura universal [...] afirmando preferentemente los valores nacionales.

Todos tenemos clarísimos cuales son esos valores... ¿o no?

b) Realizar investigación en las humanidades, las ciencias y las tecnologías, y fomentar la creación intelectual y artística.

Repito, por si alguien no entendió: Relizar investigación.

c) Formar humanistas, científicos y profesionales de arta calidad académica, de acuerdo con las necesidades del país,...

¡Ups!

... desarrollar en sus miembros los valores éticos y cívicos, las actitudes de responsabilidad y solidadridad social y el conocimiento de la realidad nacional, así como la necesidad de la integración nacional, latinoamericana y universal.

Ejem...

d) Extender su acción y sus servicios a la comunidad y promover su desarrollo intergral, y
e) Cumplir las demás atribuciones que les señalen la Constitución, la Ley y su Estatuto.

Artículo 3.- Las Universidades se rigen en su actividad por los siguientes principios:
a) La búsqueda de la verdad, la afirmación de los valores y el servicio a la comunidad.

Que así sea... y si así es, sintámonos orgullosos.

b) El pluralismo y la libertad de pensamiento, de crítica, de expresión y de cátedra con lealtad a los principios constitucionales y a los fines de la correspondiente Universidad; y,

Me gustaron tres palabras: libertad, crítica y lealtad.

c) El rechazo de toda forma de violencia, intolerancia, discriminación y dependencia.

[...]

CAPÍTULO V: DE LOS PROFESORES

Artículo 43.- Es inherente a la docencia universitaria la investigación, la enseñanza, la capacitación permanente y la producción intelectual. [...]

"Se entiende por producción intelectual la producción de escritos científicos, literarios y humanísticos, además de obras artísticas, inventos, diseños o desarrollos tecnológicos originales."

Artículo 51.- Son deberes de los Profesores Universitarios:
a) El ejercicio de la cátedra con libertad de pensamiento y con respeto a la discrepancia;
b) Cumplir con el Estatuto de la Universidad y sus reglamentos y realizar cabalmente y bajo responsabilidad las actividades de su cargo;
c) Perfeccionar permanentemente sus conocimientos y capacidad docente y realizar labor intelectual creativa;
d) Observar conducta digna;

Un poco ambiguo, creo.

e) Presentar periódicamente informes sobre el desarrollo de su labor en caso de recibir remuneración especial por la investigación; y,

La remuneración, o, mejor dicho, la falta de es el punto álgido aquí.

f) Ejercer sus funciones en la Universidad con independencia de toda actividad política partidaria.

[...]

CAPÍTULO VI: DE LOS ESTUDIANTES

Artículo 57.- Son deberes de los estudiantes:
a) Cumplir con esta ley y con el Estatuto de la Universidad y dedicarse con esfuerzo y responsabilidad a su formación humana, académica y profesional;

No sé si quedó claro esode esfuerzo y responsabilidad...

b) Respetar los derechos de los miembros de la comunidad universitaria;
c) Contribuir al prestigio de la Universidad y a la realización de sus fines; [...]

Artículo 58.- De conformidad con el Estatuto de la Universidad los estudiantes tienen derecho a:
a) Recibir una formación académica y profesional en un área determinada libremente escogida sobre la base de una cultura general;

Cultura general es el cúmulo de conocimientos que adquieres a lo largo de tu vida por estudio y experiencia, que te permite desarrollar criterio, es decir, la capacidad para juzgar las cosas. Cuanto más cultura general tienes, más amplio es tu punto de vista. 

b) Expresar libremente sus ideas y no ser sancionados por causa de ellas;

Y aquí entramos en el campo de la subjetividad... ¿cómo se maneja esto en carreras como la arquitectura, en la que las ideas propias - concernientes al gusto y a las preferencias - podrían ser consideradas incorrectas por algunos profesores?

c) Participar en el gobierno de la Universidad;
d) Asociarse libremente de acurdo con la Constitución y la ley para fines relacionados con los de la Universidad; y,
e) Utilizar los servicios académicos de bienestar y asistencia que ofrece la Universidad, así como los demás beneficios que establece la ley en su favor.

[...]

CAPÍTULO VIII: DE LA INVESTIGACIÓN

Artículo 65.- La investigación es función obligatoria de las Universidades, que la organiza y conduce libremente. Igual obligación tienen los profesores como parte de su tarea académica en la forma que determine el Estatuto. Su complimiento recibe el estímulo y apoyo de su institución.

¡Bueno es saberlo!

Artículo 66.- [...] Las Universidades publican anualmente un resumen informativo de los trabajos de investigación realizados.

According to Rapoport (1980:298), environments are thought before they are built. Equally, we build in order to think and act (Preziosi 1983). The relationship is essentially dynamic and reflexive. Winston Churchill said that ‘first we shape our buildings and afterwards our buildings shape us’. This relationship is dynamic, subtle and complex since the effects of environment are not direct, passive or readily predictable (Holahan 1978:1). Giddens’ theory of structuration (for example 1984) has provided a useful conceptual approach: social structures (as embodied in traditions and social rules) have a dialectical relationship with human actions. Structures are both the medium and the outcome of social practices (e.g. Duncan 1985; Pader 1988). They are modified continually as the actions that constitute them change.

Cómo se hace una tesis (U. Eco)

"Hay cursos en que están matriculadas millares de personas. El profesor conoce más o menos a una treintena que asisten con más frecuencia, y con ayuda de sus colaboradores (becarios, adjuntos, auxiliares) consigue hacer trabajar con cierta asiduidad a un centenar. Muchos de ellos son pudientes, criados en una familia culta y en contacto con un ambiente cultural vivaz, que pueden permitirse viajes instructivos, asisten a los festivales artísticos y teatrales y visitan países extranjeros. Luego vienen los otros. Estudiantes que a lo mejor trabajan y se pasan el día en la oficina de censo de una población de diez mil habitantes donde sólo hay papelerías. Estudiantes que, desilusionados de la universidad, han elegido la actividad política y persiguen otro tipo de formación, pero que antes o después tendrán que cumplir el compromiso de la tesis. Estudiantes muy pobres que, teniendo que escoger un examen, calculan el precio de los diversos textos prescritos y se dicen: «este examen es de tantas pesetas», y de dos complementarios eligen el que cuesta menos. Estudiantes que en ocasiones acuden a clase y luchan por encontrar un sitio en el aula atiborrada; y al final les gustaría hablar con el docente, pero hay una cola de treinta personas y han de tomar el tren porque no pueden quedarse en un hotel. Estudiantes a quienes nadie ha explicado jamás cómo se busca un libro en una biblioteca y en qué biblioteca: frecuentemente no saben que podrían encontrar libros en la biblioteca de su ciudad o ignoran cómo se saca una tarjeta de préstamo.

Los consejos de este libro están especialmente destinados a ellos. También valen para el estudiante de enseñanza superior que va a ir a la universidad y quisiera saber cómo funciona la alquimia de la tesis.

A todos estos quisiera sugerir este libro por lo menos dos cosas:

— Se puede hacer una tesis digna aun hallándose en una situación difícil, causada por discriminaciones recientes o remotas;

— Se puede aprovechar la ocasión de la tesis (aunque el resto del período universitario haya sido desilusionante o frustrante) para recuperar el sentido positivo y progresivo del estudio no entendido como una cosecha de nociones, sino como elaboración crítica de una experiencia, como adquisición de una capacidad (buena
para la vida futura) para localizar los problemas, para afrontarlos con método, para exponerlos siguiendo ciertas técnicas de comunicación."

Plagiarism :: Plagio

Source: What is Plagiarism?, published by Plagiarism.org
http://www.plagiarism.org/plag_article_what_is_plagiarism.html

"Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work, or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense:

According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means

- to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
- to use (another's production) without crediting the source
- to commit literary theft
- to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

But can words and ideas really be stolen?

According to U.S. law, the answer is yes. The expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property, and is protected by copyright laws, just like original inventions. Almost all forms of expression fall under copyright protection as long as they are recorded in some way (such as a book or a computer file).

All of the following are considered plagiarism:

- turning in someone else's work as your own
- copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
- failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
- giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
- changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
- copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not (see our section on "fair use" rules)

Most cases of plagiarism can be avoided, however, by citing sources. Simply acknowledging that certain material has been borrowed, and providing your audience with the information necessary to find that source, is usually enough to prevent plagiarism. See our section on citation for more information on how to cite sources properly."

Manual de Tesis

Escrito informal (pero no malo), con consejos sobre la tesis de arquitectura y sus etapas.

"1. Hacer tesis o no hacer tesis:

Lo primero que me nace decir es "hazla de una vez, que se sobrevive", pero creo que la respuesta es más compleja. Personalmente creo que el hacer la tesis de fin de carrera tiene dos ventajas.

En primer lugar, da la posibilidad de hacer ese proyectito que uno siempre quiso hacer, con una cierta flexibilidad, pocas limitaciones presupuestarias y sin clientes irrazonables. Claro que hay un asesor y éste puede ponerse pesadísimo, y también hay un jurado que puede ser aún peor; pero no hay una ama de casa con vocación de dibujante ni un cliente ingeniero que cree que uno es sólo decorador.

When writing a thesis, there are a great many more than 15 possible mistakes to make. This list focuses on the top 15 most common mistakes, so be sure to reference this as a guideline. Remember to double check everything with your professor or your thesis advisor. When it comes down to it, the outcome of your paper depends on their assessment so it’s very important that you work with them every step of the way.
Complicated Subject Matter – It’s admirable that you are interested in taking on a topic with wide focus and magnitude, but it’s neither necessary nor advisable. Pare your subject down to a manageable size and focus in on details. If you are worried about length, expand your development and discussion rather than widening the scope.
Simplistic Subject Matter – The opposite end of the complexity spectrum is choosing a subject that is so simple that an undergraduate student could easily handle it. You want to impress your committee, not bore them by repeating a collection of facts that they already know to reach a foregone conclusion.
Too Many Tangents – You start to say one thing then mid-story you cut to an example then into a back story then ahead to a parallel conclusion. Or you take a five page exploration of the history of sun’s mythology when your topic is photosynthesis. This doesn’t make you look well informed. It makes you look disorganized.
No Development, Details, or Examples – You want to help your reader as much as possible. Your audience is an intelligent group of people with basic knowledge of your subject but limited knowledge of your focus. Spell out your conclusions with examples, graphics, details, and developments so that everyone is clear on the theory you started with, the action you tested that theory with, and the conclusions you came up with.
No Guidance – If you don’t ask questions, how can you expect to know the answers? It may sound simple enough, but many students would rather write their thesis without any help from their professors or advisor. It is tremendously important that you ask all the questions necessary not only to ensure that your thesis is up to department standards but also to end up with correct conclusions instead of a confusing, incorrect mess.
Stolen Lectures – The last thing you want to do when choosing your topic is to take the subject matter directly from your professor’s notes – unless you are using that as a jumping off point. If you intend to start with a lecture topic and extrapolate, that’s fine. But make sure you do more than summarize what was said in class.
Waiting – When you wait until the last minute to do your research, you will no doubt find that all of the most up to date information has been checked out of the library, inter-library loans will take too long to arrive and no meaningful study can be completed in time. Don’t wait.
Citing Summaries or Reviews – Any professor worth his or her salt will no the availability of material out there. Utilize it. All of it.
Using Internet Research – The internet is a great place to begin. It is not, however, where to get your research. It is far too unreliable and your risk of getting bad information is too great to risk.
Plagiarizing Someone’s Paper From Another Class – Going down to the reserves in the library basement and picking out a thesis that suits you and ‘re-writing’ it is, again, betting too much on the bad memory and silence of your professors. Your time will be better spent doing your own work.
Paraphrased Thesis From a Journal – It’s a big world, but a small discipline. Your professor or advisor won’t have to go far to find your source.
Sourcing An Encyclopedia – Just don’t. And if you really feel that you have to, make sure it’s not your only source. Yes. It has happened.
Sourcing Outdated Research – Use the most up to date research, books, papers, and articles that you can find. Some topics will allow a little bit of leeway on this, but never rely on sources more than 25 years old for the bulk of your research.
No Editing – Either you’ve waited until the last minute or you just don’t want to spend anymore time on it. Whatever your reason for not editing is, it’s not good enough. Even the best thesis will be ruined by bad grammar, misspellings, and dropped words.
Too Many Cooks – Sometimes, in an effort to create the best possible thesis, you may be tempted to ask anyone and everyone to check out your paper. Don’t. Limit your influences to a very few trusted colleagues and professors. This is your work. Don’t let someone else spoil it.
