Talk by Pat Thomson - Nottingham University - about:

What help do doctoral students need to write?
Doctoral researchers face range of common difficulties in working with literatures, establishing writing routines and strategies, writing their texts. Many also experience serial crises of confidence and authority. I will discuss each of these in turn, considering what kinds of supports are useful for them, drawing on a range of international initiatives and web-based resources.
