Workshops and presentation days
In addition to working with your supervisor, you will be
expected to attend three workshops plus a presentation day during the course of
the year. These will be held on the
Drake Circus campus. For distance learners, resources will be available via Moodle for the workshops;
and the presentation can be organised remotely with prior agreement from the
supervisor and dissertation co-ordinator.
Workshops: 12 September, 20 November 2017 and 13 March 2018.
The first contact day will provide an overview
of the research process throughout the academic year, together with a
workshop focusing upon the development of critical thinking, critical writing
and their relationship in formulating a literature review. The remaining
workshops will be aligned with your specific needs as you progress through the research process.
Presentations: 5 or 13 June 2018.
Please note that you are only required
to attend one of the presentation days.
(Occasionally delivery dates might be subject to change – always check with the module lead or Professional Development Unit).
