A research degree involves creating, noting, connecting and retrieving a lot of information and ideas, across a number of years, which can challenge our normal habits of keeping notes. This session will look at a range of methods for organising information and ideas from your reading, writing, drafting and feedback processes, and how to evolve these across the lifespan of the doctorate. (Please note that this session does not address data management.) There will be plenty of time to discuss participants’ experiences and strategies.
About the facilitator
Cassily has worked in universities for 20 years in Group-of-Eight, regional and international universities, in academic literacy, researcher development and English linguistics. In recent years she has supported thousands of research candidates, early career researchers, supervisors and other academic staff and students with counselling, teaching, writing groups, writing feedback and coaching. In addition to her degrees in linguistics and education, she is a qualified social worker. She never finished her own PhD, many years ago – and doesn’t regret it – but has travelled that journey with others many times since then.
