Writing retreat in Windsor
A group of 3rd and 4th year CDT students attended the writing retreat in Windsor for 2 days this May. The mornings involved attending a online course with Scriptocube on Academic writing and reducing anxiety whilst the afternoons were spent on quite time to concentrate on writing in the peaceful surroundings of a lovely Windsor hotel.
Students used this time to work on literature reviews, thesis chapter planning and paper publications. Using mind maps and a 7 step plan by Dr Catriona Ryan the course provider.
I really enjoyed my time as a member of the CDT-ACM. It provided the opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of materials characterisation techniques and to engage with the wider research community by participating in conferences and Outreach events.
