Doctoral Workshops 2014: Becoming a Researcher (June 2014, UK)

Dates: 25-26 June 2014
Location: Alan Berry Building, Coventry University UK
Website: http://dartplus.org/events/future-courses
Deadline: ASAP

Reasoning, writing and presentation skills workshop

This two day workshop builds upon basic university training (for example generic study skills modules) through participatory sessions that encourage better understanding of the nature of research and how it may be communicated to others. The outcomes that you may expect include: how to refine research questions; how to form a logical argument; criteria for writing and presentation; and an understanding of the infrastructure that supports academic research. It is conducted within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

On completion of this workshop, there may be an opportunity to also attend the later ‘training conference’ for research students, to be held 10 September 2014, when many of the lessons learned may be put into practice in a simulated conference environment.
