Workshop summary


This session considers different ways to approach the structuring of the doctoral thesis and is particularly helpful for those writing arts humanities or social science theses where structure is not formulaic. Those writing their thesis are likely to find that the session is helpful since it covers some of the areas where decisions need to be made. We will discuss some of the issues that underpin these choice options. The session is an opportunity for collegial sharing of strategies and will include an optional voluntary data collection of student experience with structuring their theses.

Dr Susan Carter has been involved in generic support of doctoral students for more than four years and is particularly interested in the mechanics of the written process. Bring your questions and comments!
