Guide on How to Structure a Thesis, Report or Paper

October 6, 2022 - 12 PM EDT |
Presented by:
Robert P. Ormrod, Aarhus University

Supervision sessions become more productive, and students are more independent in their writing – does this sound good? This webinar presents the Routledge book written by Robert P. Ormrod Ph.D, How to Structure a Thesis, Report or Paper: A guide for Students that addresses these issues. Over the past 20 years, Robert P. Ormrod Ph.D has developed a generic structure for a thesis, report or paper, along with a description of how to write and present different types of assignment, when the student should ask their supervisor for their supervisor’s own preferences, and when the student should take responsibility themselves. Robert’s students found it so useful that they encouraged him to write a book about it; this webinar presents that book and discusses the two, main advantages: that students become more independent in their writing, and that supervision sessions become more productive, leading to a greater focus on the topic and less time on getting the basics right. Everyone’s a winner!
Organizing Information in your Field of Study

November 8, 2022 - 12 PM EST |
Presented by:
Umit Gunes, Duke University

The rate at which information is produced these days is increasing faster and faster. The speed with which information is being produced not only in academic publishing but also at the same time in social media, visual materials, and video content increases with each passing day. In this increasing accumulation of information, the importance of storing, processing, and organizing information is increasing daily just as quickly as the production of information. For researchers, organizing the knowledge of the field in which they work has vital importance, both in terms of process efficiency as well as in outputting quality products. Randomly gathered information is just a collection of information that absolutely must be classified if it is to be useful at work. This webinar will explain how to organize information. I will receive in this information stack as well as Citavi, the most successful program able to provide this.
