FASS620d Advanced Thesis Writing (Final Year Students only): Towards Completion (distance)
The FASS620d intranet site provides a virtual version of Professor Lynne Pearce's one-day intensive course, FASS620: Advanced Thesis Writing (Final Year Students only): Towards Completion. This course has been designed specifically for PhD students who nearing the end of their: typically, Year 3-4 (FT) or Year 6-7 (PT); it also pre-supposes that you have already taken the First Year thesis writing course, FASS516: Thesis Writing (First Year Students only), which is also available in a distance learning version (FASS516d). If you haven't yet taken this course, we strongly recommend that you take a look at it before embarking upon this one. Not only does this course refer back to exercises and case-studies featured on the Year 1 course, but there is also a good deal of material stored on the site that you may find useful. Similarly, it will be to your advantage to have looked at FASS619d, 'Refocusing the Thesis' (designed for students midway through their PhD), if you have not yet done so.
This module has been set up as an interactive online resource that will run for four weeks during the Lent Term (16-19 inclusive). Participants will be invited to share their responses to the various exercises with one another and Professor Pearce (L.Pearce@lancaster.ac.uk) will be on hand to answer queries and participate in the discussions.
The online version of the course aims to reproduce the experience of the campus workshop as closely as possible and takes the form of 3 sessions:
Each of these sessions will include an exercise you are invited to participate in, the 'answers' to which are posted separately in 'Course Materials'.
Please note that this module/online resource will be made available via a Moodle site in February 2015.
