Demystify your thesis is designed to address the PhD challenges in a way that empowers the students to exercise their own control over the many elements that contribute to the successful completion of a thesis. The three day workshop will cover the following:
- Getting the most out of your supervisor
- Being an independent researcher is more than completing a thesis
- What is a thesis?
- Developing a research question
- The literature review: when to start & when to stop
- Finding your voice in what you write
- The architecture of a thesis
- Controlling your chapters
- What examiners look for
The program was developed and is run by Professor Ron Adams, who has continuously supervised PhD and Masters students for the past twenty five years, and over the last fifteen years has worked with hundreds of other research students at many Australian and overseas universities who have participated in his Demystifying the Thesis program. In 2004 Ron was awarded the Victoria University Vice-Chancellor’s Medal for Excellence in Research Supervision, and was winner of the 2010 Australian Learning and Teaching Council’s Program Award for Postgraduate Education.
