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.

Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop — Copyright Essentials

Graduate Student Research Skills Workshop

Tuesday, Feb. 7, 3:30-5, Rice Hall Auditorium (Room 130 Rice Hall)

University of Virginia

Please join your fellow SEAS graduate students in this, the inaugural, Research Skills Workshop.  The topic—-Copyright Essentials.

With the Engineering School’s implementation in 2012 of a new digital-only deposit program for master’s theses and dissertations,  Engineering graduate students must address enhanced responsibilities for copyright, grants compliance, and other traditional author’s issues of privacy, defamation, and related concerns. Students will be required to sign a formal deposit license with the University Library as part of their degree completion process, and all theses and dissertations will be available worldwide.  Good advance planning and awareness of key copyright and other legal requirements are more essential than ever before. Madelyn Wessel from the Office of General Counsel will be here to talk about the library deposit license and the new Copyright Essentials materials that have been prepared to assist Engineering School students with this new program.  Some of the ways students can protect and share their scholarly and research works via Creative Commons and Open Source licensing, and other author’s rights issues will also be discussed.  The workshop will provide ample opportunities for Q & A.

Look for future announcements and other opportunities to learn and enhance your research skills in this new, monthly workshop series for the entire SEAS Community of Scholars.

Brought to you by the Graduate Student Module of the Strategic Plan Implementation Team and the Office of the Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Programs
