Is this course right for me?
Target Audience: PGR Students
At the start of the workshop, students are encouraged to share and discuss
the challenges associated with writing, before we start discussing structure and expectations.
A variety of writing and productivity techniques are introduced and this is complemented by a discussion of software tools that can be helpful. A section on data presentation is also
included and examples of good figures are used to illustrate best practice. By the end of the workshop, students will have a clear understanding of what is required of their thesis, they will have initiated their writing, considered the potential pitfalls and know how to avoid them and started to design a writing strategy that works for them.
At the end of this workshop participants will have:
• an understanding of the working structure of a thesis;
• developed a greater awareness of the different stages of the writing process;
• been introduced to techniques for planning their writing & being productive;
• explored how to manage their thesis writing so as to make better use of the time, resources and technology available;
• increased their understanding of the pitfalls of thesis writing,
