Wednesday 23 October - City

The Library will provide a light morning tea each day, though sadly we won't be able to provide cafe quality coffee... there are too many excellent options for coffee on campus! We will provide tea and water though, and don't worry - there should be biscuits left for the afternoon sessions.

Maintaining motivation

9.30-11.00, Presenters: Fernanda Quilici Mola, Priya Rani, Rowa Barashi and Chamindika Weerakoon. Location: Building 8, level 4, room 11

Are you feeling trapped in the research maze? Afraid to write? Not getting the research done? You’re not alone. Many research students drop out because they’ve lost the motivation to continue. However, there are things you can do to get yourself back in the swing of things.

In this practical workshop we’ll hear from a panel of students who have been in this situation and survived. Then we’ll help you to become self-motivated and generate successful outcomes by using a range of strategies.
