Workshop Name Writing specifically for a PhD thesis
Date Wednesday, 12 May 2021
Time 11:00am to 12:30pm (AEST)
Venue Online via Zoom
Presenter Associate Professor Sunil Gupta
Registration Email delh@deakin.edu.au and the Zoom link will be provided closer to the event date.



Most, if not all of the Hub’s PhD students and the majority of A2I2’s students would have completed their literature review and met their Confirmation of Candidature milestone. This will be an opportune time for them to learn the skill required to categorise the mountain of information and data that they will have to go through, compartmentalise, and determine if they should form part of the final thesis or not. To ensure quality outcome, students should commence this information management habit early in their tenure so as to drive a particular writing style throughout.  

This will be a seminar style workshop with time set aside for Q&As. Participants are also encouraged to engage with the presenter at any time.

This workshop will be suitable for any students are in the early stage of their PhD journey (first 1.5 to 2 years) albeit those in the later stage of their PhD may still find it useful.

PhD students of other universities are also welcome to join in.
