Brain Food: Getting Started on Your Thesis
In this workshop session, we provide foundational skills and strategies that will carry you through the thesis or dissertation process. Topics covered will include:
- Managing the Thesis Process: We discuss goal setting and time management strategies to keep you motivated throughout your graduate degree.
- Formulating Your Research Question: Your research question forms the basis of your research project. In this session, we discuss how to formulate an effective research question and how to use it to guide and inform your thesis or dissertation from start to finish.
- Proposal Writing: In this session, we will examine the essential components of a thesis (or grant) proposal and discuss strategies to create clarity, concision, and cohesion in your writing.
