Virtual Dissertation Day Camp - Half Day Mornings

Day Camp Overview

Dissertation Day Camp offers a full day of writing and research time. The day begins and ends with goal setting and goal assessment exercises to help frame the day and measure progress. Your goal is to practice the process of writing and research during the designated writing times and to build the habit of regularly assessing your progress and development. Camp availability is subject to change based on the pandemic status.

We will meet via Zoom by 8:30am (note: this time was corrected on 3/10). You will be muted during work sessions or can request a breakout room using the Zoom chat feature
