HOORC RISE students in Grahamstown
Five Mphil/Phd students from HOORC, have just come back from a 2 week workshop at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. The workshop also drew students from Mozambique, Uganda and South Africa. It was aimed at introducing RISE graduate students to the major conventions governing academic research dissertation writing and to provide these students with strategies for successfully negotiating their way through the academic research writing process. The workshop also aimed at facilitating discussions on the part of the workshop participants in terms of the challenges they face in dissertation writing and to provide opportunities for them to engage in focused drafting of aspects of their dissertations.
