Does anyone know where I might find some inspiration for Business Undergraduates seeking topics / subjects for their final year research based dissertations?

Hey Jo!

I understand about the target audience for the seminar and had reflected on this after re-reading the programme for the 4th May event last night. It would be brilliant if we could find some way of bringing the ESDS message to the attention of students here at UCBC - perhaps we could put on a joint event, hosted here?

I hope to take part in the event on the 4th anyway, and am off to sign up right now!

Hi Martin, we'll be pitching the session at teachers rather than students and will have a max of 20 spaces, so I'm wondering if we might meet this need another way - I'll have a word with other members of the team as I can feel a plan brewing...

Hi Jo !

Thanks for bringing this to my attention - I've had a look at the programme and think it looks excellent (especially the first session ;)

Would it be a) possible and b) appropriate for me to bring along some undergraduates (2nd years starting their dissertations next Sept, but planning them now)? I'd really like to do so, as students from my neck of the woods (Blackburn) don't often get such opportunities. I think it would only be three or four maximum.

What do you think? I will be coming along for CPD and personal interest too.

i set up a group in this connection here on methodspace. i mean reading non-sequentially for meaning making which an experience unlike the traditional text. text goes linear and sequential but hypertext goes multisequentially which is how our brain works.... so,,, great space for work..

Hey Mudassar!

I haven't done any work personally on these topics. I'd be happy to hear your thoughts in terms of the relevance of hypertext reading, online reading and thinkaloud protocol to Undergraduate Research. Perhaps you could clarify what in particular you are looking for?

Hello Martin, any work on hypertext reading or online reading, thinkaloud protocol?

My intention for this group is to provide a forum through which the research skills of undergraduates can be developed, enhanced and supported. The ability to explore research from philosophical, methodological, pedagogical and practical perspectives 'at a level appropriate to undergraduate study' will provide a valuable applied resource. Please use this forum to offer your ideas, to air your issues and to share good practice - because I will use it with my students!! As a result the world will stand a greater chance of being graced by graduates capable of conducting research projects of high calibre, valid focus and with effective outcomes. (well, I can hope, can't I??!)
