This lecture covers three main ways to organize the narrative/traditional literature review. Different organizational mapping tools as well as language features, such as signposting, hedging and reporting verbs will also be addressed.
These are general, non-discipline specific lectures/workshops that focus on elements of writing and language in different sections of the master’s thesis. They are suitable for students who currently are or will soon be writing a master’s thesis. Instruction and discussions are in English.
Each workshop covers the purpose of and suggestions for how to work with and write different sections in the master’s thesis as well as providing some tips, strategies and resources to help along the way. This series aims to serve as a complement to instructions and information from your department; it does not aim to serve as a substitute for instructions and information from your department.
Activities in the workshops may be carried out as a whole group, in breakout rooms in small groups/pairs, or individually. Active participation is expected.
