Topic - Writing your Discussion
In this webinar, we continue exploring how to write within the IMRaD structure. The Discussion section is where a combination of analysis and sythesis occurs, which ties together your research purpose, aims, methods, results, and findings. Writing the discussion in a clear, well structured, and concise manner can be challenging, so we will discuss some helpful techniques to arrange the Discussion, and ways to demonstrate your analysis.
Webinars involve a 20-30 minute lecture/presentation, 20-30 minutes of small group work relevant to your research, and 20-30 minutes of open discussion. An additional 30 minutes is available from 12:30-13:00 for answering further questions or more deeply discuss writing-related issues you face.

Topic - Research Design and the Thesis: Article-based Thesis or Monograph?

Part 1 of 4 in our Article-based Ph.D webinar series

Many Ph.Ds are expected to undertake an article-based thesis, but is this approach better than writing a monograph? Which approach is best for you and your project?
In this webinar, the NMBU Writing Centre will discuss how the shift from monograph, or classical dissertations, towards article-based theses has occurred and how you can decide which thesis style is best for your reserach project. We will examine how your research design can be a determining factor in choosing to pursue article-based or monograph thesis for your Ph.D. Whether you are just beginning your Ph.D, or are preparing to write your research, this webinar can clarify the benefits and challenges of using the article-based or monograph approach to publishing your work.

Webinars involve a 20-30 minute lecture/presentation, 20-30 minutes of small group work relevant to your research, and 20-30 minutes of open discussion. An optional 30 minutes is available from 12:30-13:00 for answering further questions or more deeply discuss writing-related issues you face.

Ph.D Writing Webinar
Topic - Articles versus the Kappe: Different audiences, different purposes

Part 2 of 4 in our Article-based Ph.D webinar series

An article-based thesis will require you to combine your articles into a Kappe. However, there is not always clear guidance on how a Kappe can be written. Since Ph.Ds only need to write one Kappe, we have little experience with knowing the purpose and the intended audience of the Kappe, compared to the experience we gain in writing articles for peer-reviewed journals. In this webinar, we will discuss why you need to think differently about your Kappe than your articles, and how to identify the Kappe's purpose and audience for smoother, more effective Kappe writing.

Webinars involve a 20-30 minute lecture/presentation, 20-30 minutes of small group work relevant to your research, and 20-30 minutes of open discussion. An optional 30 minutes is available from 12:30-13:00 for answering further questions or more deeply discuss writing-related issues you face.

Topic - Demonstrating 'Doctorateness' in the Kappe

Part 3 of 4 in our Article-based Ph.D webinar series

The Kappe represents your cumulative research work, knowledge on a subject, and contribution to your disciplinary field. This contribution is expected to demonstrate 'doctorateness', but what exactly is 'doctorateness'? In this webinar, we expose essential elements your kappe should showcase that your research, and you, are worthy of the Doctorate title. To demonstrate your worthiness, your Kappe should highlight that your research work has: publishability, disciplinary belonging, originality, independence, and cohesiveness. If you want to know what each of these elements are, and how they demonstrate 'doctorateness', we encourage you to join the webinar.

Webinars involve a 20-30 minute lecture/presentation, 20-30 minutes of small group work relevant to your research, and 20-30 minutes of open discussion. An optional 30 minutes is available from 12:30-13:00 for answering further questions or more deeply discuss writing-related issues you face.

Ph.D Writing Webinar
Topic - The Narrative Structure for Kappe Writing

Part 4 of 4 in our Article-based Ph.D webinar series

Few guidelines exist for structuring and writing a Kappe. As if a Kappe was not difficult enough, unclear or unavailable guidelines to support writing a Kappe and forming a Narrative can leave many Ph.Ds feeling stranded. This webinar focuses on practical approaches to organizing, structuring, and developing a strong narrative and format for the Kappe. We will share important structural elements to help you control your ideas and present your research with a clear purpose and direction. In addition, we will present two models - the sandwich model and the two-part model - to clarify ways to organize and format your Kappe writing.

Webinars involve a 20-30 minute lecture/presentation, 20-30 minutes of small group work relevant to your research, and 20-30 minutes of open discussion. An optional 30 minutes is available from 12:30-13:00 for answering further questions or more deeply discuss writing-related issues you face.
