Description

What do thesis examiners really want?

Does a thesis have an audience of 2 or 2000? While you write for other researchers in your field, you must first please just two people: your examiners. In this workshop, we will examine the research on how examiners examine and ask: What separates a good thesis from a bad one? Why do examiners look for their own work in the bibliography? What makes examiners cranky? And other burning questions.

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Have a better understanding of the examination process generally and how it tends to work at ANU.
  • Know what the 'pain points' for examiners are and how to plan for them in the way you write your thesis.
  • Have started developing an examiner selection template.

This workshop will be presented by Associate Professor Inger Mewburn, Director of Research Training, ANU (aka the Thesis Whisperer)
