Dissertation station is a pilot programme of events and peer support, taking place in the Postgraduate Hub* (PG Hub) in Coventry House. Tuesday afternoon events are from 2-4pm and next week's one is on referencing and plagiarism, including an introduction to reference management software, which is very useful for researchers at all levels.
Dissertation station also features Friday afternoon events which are about students' well-being during their experience of undertaking a dissertation or research project.
Future events planned include academic writing themes and marketing your postgraduate experience to employers. We're working with other departments on campus who are the experts for these sessions, including Student Careers and Skills in particular. The format of Tuesday sessions is a question and answer one where students get to ask their questions and experts get to showcase the training and support that is available on campus.
All postgraduate students can book to attend the sessions or just show up on the day!
*The Postgraduate Hub is a new space for postgrad students on the University of Warwick campus: it opened in March this year, and my team in the Library are running the space so that we can develop the offer alongside that of the Wolfson Research Exchange. Both spaces are accessible to PhD students, but whilst the Research Exchange is for all kinds of researcher, the PG Hub is for all kinds of postgraduate so includes Warwick's large population of taught postgraduate students.
