Session 1: Getting the most out of your supervisor

Session 2: Being an independent researcher is more than completing a thesis

Session 3: What is a thesis?

Session 4: Developing a research question

Session 5: The literature review: when to start & when to stop

Session 6: Finding your voice in what you write

Session 7: The architecture of a thesis

Session 8: Controlling your chapters

Session 9: 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.
