About this Event

The Anglia Ruskin University Doctoral School in collaboration with the Postgraduate Researcher Association invites you to attend our Winter Student-led Writing Retreat on Friday 10th January.

The purpose of these retreats is to provide an opportunity for PGRs to present on relevant topics, learn and share techniques and feedback as well as to socialize network. The day will be structured around brief student-taught presentations focusing on particular methodologies or warm-up exercises, followed by writing slots and breaks. Content will vary from useful tools meant to assist in organising and preparation for writing as well as exercises to inspire different ways to encourage and discover new ways of writing up. There will also be opportunities to socialise and network with fellow PGRs throughout the day.

The presentations slated for the 10th January retreat are as follows:

Stretching as a Form of Productivity in an Office Space

–To be delivered by Henry Chung, Associate Lecturer, Sport Science

Introduction to Practices on Mindfulness and How It Can Be Applied in Contemporary Society

Recent research has shown mindfulness exercises can assist in stress management and develop resilience in the process of completing your PhD.

Preparation

In preparation for the retreat, participants should select what they would like to work on during the retreat. For example the day can be utilised to prepare for an annual review, a chapter, or a paper for a journal or conference. Attendees should be sure to bring all the necessary notes, plans and any other required resources. The most progress will likely be made at a drafting stage.
