Workshop 1: Starting the Master’s thesis: Generating ideas and finding a focus

Facilitated by Ayonghe Akonwi (PhD Candidate, University of Lapland) and Katriina Huttunen (PhD Candidate, University of Helsinki)

This workshop is intended for those in the beginning phases of their master’s thesis projects. Participation with a low threshold is encouraged, and one can attend without a readily decided topic. The workshop participants will have a chance to share and develop their ideas for their Master’s thesis through individual, group and joint exercises and discussions.

In order to gain as much as possible from the workshop, the participants are hoped to familiarize themselves with a useful online resource and a short reading that will be sent to registered participants. However, reading them not required for participation. The online resource can be found here.
