Finding effective supports and community is perhaps one of the most important, if overlooked, features of the thesis writing process. This workshop engages in discussion about the value of online thesis writing groups and includes a virtual tour of one well-established and active online thesis group. Participants will be encouraged to consider ways to build their own community and be introduced to several online tools to generate collaborative and supportive thesis writing groups.

This session is co-facilitated by Associate Professor, Antoinette Gagne from the University of Toronto and Dr Megan McIntosh from the University of Melbourne. Antoinette runs a very successful and popular thesis writing community for her students at the University of Toronto as featured on This Teaching Life. Megan is a former student of Antoinette’s and was an active member in the thesis group. Today Antoinette and Megan collaborate on research and publications on the graduate thesis writing process with a focus on multilingual writing.

This session will run for 60 minutes with ample time for questions from participants. Register using the Book Now button at left.
