This workshop will be facilitated by Dr Gideon Nomdo & Dr Moeain Arend from CHED. This active participation workshop is geared towards developing a particular framework for locating and thinking more broadly about “process” in one’s research, and about the role of the thesis statement therein. You will learn about what constitutes an argument and how one engages with argument in thesis writing.
Please join us to celebrate our undergraduate talents and find out more about our department, meet staff members as well as fellow students.
