Provisional Programme:

Friday 8th September

The venue for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday Programme is Room 219 in the McCrea Building.
Lunch will be served in the Hub and the conference dinner on Saturday 9th will be held in Founders Dining Room.

13.00-13.45 Introduction to the dissertation project – Peter Komisarczuk  
The dissertation project workshop provides 3 sessions that are aimed to develop your appreciation and skills for a successful project. What are we looking for and how do you need to structure your work to produce a good dissertation project? The key deliverable is the dissertation report. To produce a good report requires a good topic, a project plan and the successful execution of that plan. Write soon, write often, get feedback and feed-forward.

13.45-14.30 The online library – Sandra Tury  

14.30-15.00 Afternoon tea

15.00-16.00 The literature review and managing your literature resources – Sandra Tury  
The literature review is often a key element in a successful project. In this session you will explore key resources to gather your reference material such as search tools e.g. Online Library (UoLIA e-library) and scholar.google.com as well as tools to manage your bibliography. In addition we expose an example literature review and dissect it.

16.00-16.45 Dissertation project methodologies – Peter Komisarczuk and Rikke Jensen  

16.45-17.15 The dissertation report – Peter Komisarczuk
