Thesis & Dissertation Roundtable Discussions (Monthly)
Roundtable discussions provide an opportunity for graduate students (and faculty) to talk about the process of writing and research. Each discussion focuses on a different aspect of a thesis or dissertation. The spring series of roundtables continues a conversation that started in the fall 2014 when participants articulated their research questions, defined and described their research problems, and discussed their questions about writing the literature review and methodology sections. Please bring your questions!
Wednesdays 5:30–7:00 PM
- January 21 Writing up the "Results" of Your Research
