Five screencast videos tackle different chapters and aspects of the dissertation writing process:
The videos include several activities to promote engagement and active learning of the material. They are designed to give students some information about the different parts of the dissertation, and to encourage them to think about writing each chapter, to be followed up by face-to-face sessions which would include peer learning and discussion about examples of each of the chapters.
The videos are linked to above. Also supplied are full scripts for each video, and the accompanying PPT, which you may use to modify and produce your own videos (please credit me if you do this).
