Date: Thursday 15th March 2012
Topic: Developing your writing and publication plans: writing with authority, building an identity – a collaborative day course.
Guest presenter: Professor Pat Thomson, University of Nottingham School of Education.
Participants: Staff building up a research profile; early career researchers; PGR students.
This special “one off” event has been planned by colleagues responsible for the Research Matters programme with a view to assisting staff, early career researchers and PGR students in boosting their confidence and outputs; developing authoritative identities in their writing.
We are delighted that Professor Pat Thomson has agreed to facilitate the day’s work.
She will work in very practical, “hands on” ways. Her research, expertise and practical actions in assisting Doctoral students and others into print is represented in her acclaimed publications including Helping doctoral students write: pedagogies for supervision (with Barbara Kamler, Routledge, 2006) and The Routledge Doctoral Student’s Companion (Edited, with Melanie Walker, 2010).
If you would like to take part: we are going to limit the numbers to 25, so as to enable small-group, interactive work. Pat has requested that people come along with an idea for a journal article and/or one “in progress”! We will try and accommodate a balance of /staff/researchers/PGR students and we want to be as inclusive as we can!
Please email Colin Mills (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like a place reserved on the day course as soon as possible, 14th November, 2011 at the latest.
