Dissertation Peer Writing Group Workshop

Are you struggling with writing your dissertation? Feeling lost and needing a collaborative environment to offer feedback?  Would you like to join a dissertation writing group, but don’t know how?  If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then come join us for the first-ever Graduate Dissertation Peer Writing Group Workshop on Monday, October 15, 2012 from 5-7pm at the OpenGrounds space on the Corner.   [Corner of Main Street and 14th Street, Charlottesville, VA adjacent to the University of Virginia Grounds]
Sponsored by the Graduate Studies Office, this workshop is an opportunity to facilitate the formation of small dissertation writing groups for advanced graduate students actively writing their dissertations. The workshop will be divided into two parts. During the first part, students will be divided into groups based upon their broad discipline (humanities, social sciences, etc.) and each student will deliver a short “three minute thesis” in which they will orally present a synopsis of their dissertation project to the other group members in three minutes or less. After this exchange, each student will be asked to rank, in order, the top six people he/she would be interested in working with. Following this portion, there will be a short presentation by Ms. Deandra Little from the Teaching Resource Center and Mr. Phillip Trella from the Office of the Vice-President for Research which deals with with how to face the dissertation writing process, how to get the most out of your dissertation group, and other helpful resources.

Refreshments and snacks provided!
