Learning Centre Workshops

Summer Program 2018

Higher Degree Research Writing Bootcamp

The Learning Centre will be holding a writing bootcamp on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 November. Places are limited to the first 20 students who enrol by Wednesday 15 November.

The bootcamp involves you working on your thesis writing. You might be writing the literature review or drafting a section of your thesis or fine tuning an almost complete section. Learning Centre academics will be on hand to respond to your writing questions BUT there will be no formal teaching presentations at the bootcamp.

The bootcamp is for you if:

  • You have attended Learning Centre workshops.
  • You are at any stage in your HDR candidature - so long as you are writing something.
  • You want a supportive environment - and like to be surrounded by others who are writing.

Bootcamp details:
Bring your own laptop and charger.
Bring your own lunch.
We will supply tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit.

Bootcamp timetable:
Saturday 18 November 10am-4pm (with breaks for lunch and snacks to be determined by you)
Sunday 19 November 10am-4pm (with breaks to be determined by you)

Bootcamp Venue:
Learning Centre, Room 722, Level 7, Education Building, Manning Road, Camperdown Campus, University of Sydney.
