Taught Postgraduates – courses in May and June to help with your dissertations and projects

 

Once the exams are over, many taught postgraduate students will be turning their attention to their dissertations and projects. IT Services, the Library and the Student Learning Service are here to help with a series of sessions:

From the 21st to the 23rd of May, the Library will hold a series of workshops that cover the research process from choosing where and how to search for high quality information to ensuring that your referencing is as good as it can be. The three workshops are: Part 1 – Starting your dissertation research, Part 2 – Going further with your dissertation research and Part 3 – Managing your dissertation research. To find out more and to book a place please visit: www.abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking and look for Library Information Skills.

On the 28th and 29th of May, colleagues from the IT Services’ Training and Documentation Team will be running workshops to help with many of the common formatting issues that can arise when working with long documents. The workshops will look at: (Word 2013) defining and using an appropriate template, modifying inbuilt styles, inserting section breaks and page numbers, applying multi-level numbering, using captions for images, creating cross-references and creating tables of contents and tables of figures. To sign up to attend one of these workshops please visit: www.abdn.ac.uk/coursebooking and look for courses on MS Office.

The university’s Student Learning Service will be running workshops at the start of June aimed at taught postgraduates as they embark on their dissertations or projects. There will be two different sessions, the first looking at writing a literature review and the second focusing on the construction of arguments and the structuring of the dissertation. Same as with the IT and Library courses, visit:
