Kjære Phd-kollegaer og post docs,

 

Nå er sommeren snart her, men før alle drar på ferie vil TODOS gjerne invitere dere til grillfest!

 

Det er på tide å slappe av litt før sommeren, og universitetet er offisielt tomt i noen uker. Så la oss møtes torsdag 23. juni  fra 14.00 bak BFE fakultetet. TODOS stiller med pølser i brød, burgere, salat og annet godt. Om du har lyst på noe annet, eller har spesielle matbehov, så er der masse plass på grillen så det er bare å ta med! Vann vil bli tilbudt, men andre drikkevarer må man ta med selv.

Frist for påmelding er 20. Juni

Siden dette er utendørs kan det hende vi må flytte litt på datoen med hensyn til været. Registrer her om du har lyst til å komme, og bli med på facebook-eventen vår her for å holde deg oppdatert på all info.

 

Om du har noen spørsmål angående grillfesten vennligst send en mail til todos@uit.no.

———————————————————————————— 

Dear Phd colleagues and post docs,

 

Summer is almost here, but before you all leave for holidays TODOS would like to invite all PhD candidates to the last event of the semester, the TODOS barbecue!

 

It’s time to relax a little bit before summer arrives and the university will be officially empty for some weeks. So lets meet on Thursday, June 23rd from 14:00, behind the BFE faculty. TODOS will provide hot dogs, burgers, salad and some other things. If you want something special feel free to bring it with you, there will be plenty of place in the grill. Water will be available, but any other kind of drinks are on you!

 

Since it will be an outdoor event, date could change depending of the weather forecast so stay tuned to possible changes. Register here if you want to attend and join our facebook event here to get all the new information.

Deadline for registration June 20.

How to succeed with thesis writing

Dr. Rachel Riedner, Associate Professor of Writing and Women’s Studies and Executive Director of the University Writing Program at The George Washington University will hold a workshop on academic thesis writing especially designed for MA and PhD students who are writing in English. This is a unique chance for you to get an introduction to academic writing and to learn how to best succeed with your thesis.

 

This workshop is for graduate students currently writing thesis.

 

Writing is central to all disciplines as it is means through which scholars communicate knowledge to each other and to other important constituencies. Therefore, all students must learn writing and communication practices of their disciplines along with knowledge of their field.

 

Strong writing requires understanding of subject matter of a discipline as well as the conventional genres of a discipline (i.e. research essay or lab report), the style of a particular discipline (i.e. word choice or formatting), information literacy of a discipline (i.e. how to find material and who is important scholar in a field). Strong writing is built on good writing processes (i.e. peer review and revision).

 

This workshop develops writing skills for students with a focus on practical activities.

 

This workshop on thesis writing in English will focus on:

 

  • Writing conventions: genre, style, information literacy
  • Writing process: abstracts, letters to readers, self-reflexive exercises, peer review, revision
  • Challenges of writing in English

 

Rachel Riedner will also be available for informal consultation and follow-up on the workshop on Thursday May 26 from 9-12 in SVHUM C1007.

 

To register, please send an email to cathinka.d.hambro@uit.no before May 12, indicating your name, nationality and which degree program you are affiliated with (if relevant).
