Peg Boyle Single, Ph.D., Author Demystifying Dissertation Writing: A Streamlined Process from Choice of Topic to Final Text; Advice columnist for Inside Higher Education and academic writing coach, www.pegboylesingle.com
|Writing a dissertation is the final task required to earn a doctoral degree. Yet, all too often the process of writing a dissertation is not addressed in formal coursework. In this workshop for doctoral students, Dr. Single draws on 15 years of experience working with academic writers to present a practical, motivational, and humorous talk. She presents a system for developing habits of fluent writing that starts with taking useful notes and ends with a defended dissertation. In addition, Dr. Single emphasizes the importance of working on the dissertation with writing partners, either as part of an informal writing group or formal writing seminar.Sponsored by the Teaching Resource Center Tomorrow’s Professor Today Program and Graduate & Postdoctoral Professional Development Programs|
