Dissertation Boot Camp
Doctoral students: are you working on your dissertation? Are you at the beginning, or about to begin the writing process? Have you hit a road-block in your dissertation work and need to get “unstuck”?
There are many resources here at the University of Washington that can make this challenging task a bit easier. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could access them all in one place, over the course of a single day?
The Dissertation Boot Camp in the University Libraries Research Commons will take place over one Saturday (October 11, 2014) from 8:30AM-4:30PM. Talks and breakout sessions tailored to the needs of dissertation writers will be presented. Topics for these sessions may include: citation management, tools for productivity and project management, finding graduate funding, submitting your dissertation electronically, open access publishing, dealing with writers block, and more.
- Acquire a set of skills, tools, and contacts that will foster success in your dissertation writing.
- Gain structure and motivation from peers and advisors to help overcome typical roadblocks in the dissertation process.
- Discover the role of UW Libraries, the UW Graduate School, and the Odegaard Writing and Research Center as sources of support for you dissertation writing.
