BIANCHETTI, Lucídio; TURNES, Luiza  y  CUNHA, Rafael. The time of a doctorate and the role of the TICs: questions for research and analysis. Conjectura: filos. e Educ. [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.3, pp.628-644. ISSN 2178-4612.

The implementation and use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in life in general, and here with an emphasis on the spheres of work and education, have led to significant changes in people’s lives and in contemporary social structures and scenarios. In graduate studies, these changes have affected all those involved in the production and dissemination of knowledge and make it necessary to conduct qualified considerations about the spatial-temporal redimensioning caused by the insertion of ICTs in study and work processes. This article is based on a study conducted with doctoral candidates in a graduate education program at a public university. We analyzed how they relate the category of time with the use of the ICTs to face the challenge of the doctoral process today. Using interviews with the participants and content analysis, we identified that the doctoral students are adapting to the logic of the so-called academic productivism, although they often feel paralyzed by the demands induced by the graduate evaluation and financing agencies. They paradoxically affirm that the ICTs are an important ally for conducting the doctorate, although they cause an intensification of time in all elements of the process. Moreover, this redimensioning of times and spaces in the doctoral program and in the research and writing of theses with the mediation of the ICTs is seen as a “double-edged sword”, whose contradictions are inherent to the model of regulation and evaluation of graduate studies in Brazil. Finally, based on the statements of those interviewed and on the relations between productivity, intensification of time and technological mediation in this context of graduate studies, we question the possibility to revive an omnilateral perspective in this process for educating future doctors.
