writing your dissertation
‘Write, write, write. Don’t be afraid to start writing!’
(Josie, Third-year Global Studies)
• Start writing from the beginning of the project, in note form. If you have ideas for the methodology, write them down. As you read the relevant literature, make notes for the literature review.
This course will provide you with tips and strategies to successfully write your dissertation. Ideally, you should view this course before you have completed your dissertation proposal. A good portion of the advice provided in this course will tell you what to do during the proposal writing process and the data collection process that will make your writing go smoother.
You will learn about alternative formats for writing your dissertation and how you can use analytic memos during the data collection phase to help you finish in a timely manner. When it comes to writing your dissertation, you will learn how to make a timeline, create a plan for getting your writing done, and learn how to get feedback from others in ways that will support (and not confuse) you. Finally, you will think a bit about where to publish your work and consider some outlets for your work beyond a traditional manuscript.
