  • TUTOR
    Hello, Sandy. How have you been getting on with your dissertation?
    SANDY
    Fine, and I've been working hard on the various action points we agreed on our last tutorial.
    TUTOR
    Do you want to talk me through what you've done?
    SANDY
    Yeah, sure. Well, we agreed on three main targets for me to aim for. The first one was to find out about suitable data analysis software.
    TUTOR
    Yes.
    SANDY
    And what I decided to do was to look through cataloguesQ21 specialising in IT.
    TUTOR
    That's a good idea. What did you come up with?
    SANDY
    I found the names of two promising ones.
    TUTOR
    Right.
    SANDY
    But I also thought it'd be worthwhile talking to a lecturer.
    TUTOR
    Oh right. Who did you see?
    SANDY
    Jane Prince. Do you know her? She's in the Computer CentreQ22.
    TUTOR
    Yes, of course, she's the new Head.
    SANDY
    Yes. Well, she was very helpful.
    TUTOR
    Oh, that's good. Did she suggest anything in particular?
    SANDY
    Yeah. She recommended software called Vivat and said I should book up for a couple of practice sessions using Vivat.
    TUTOR
    Great. I'm sure you'll find them useful.
    SANDY
    And, of course, the second target was to draw up a survey checklistQ23 which I ...
    TUTOR
    Yes, you emailed me it last week.
    SANDY
    Have you had a chance to look ...?
    TUTOR
    Of course, um I think it's good. Very much on the right lines. I'd say your first two sections are spot on. I wouldn't suggest that you change anything there, but in section three you really do need to have questions on teaching experienceQ24.
    SANDY
    Yeah. I was thinking that section looked a bit short.
    TUTOR
    Right.
    SANDY
    And my third target was, do further reading on discipline.
    TUTOR
    Oh yes. I mentioned a couple of writers, didn't I?
    SANDY
    Yes, well I got hold of the Banerjee and I thought that was excellent.
    But I'm afraid I didn't manage to get hold of the essays about classroomQ25 management - you know, the ones by Simon Ericsson.
    The bookshop said it was out of print and the library doesn't have a copy.
    TUTOR
    Oh right, and I'm afraid I've lent my copy to another student.
    What I suggest you do is try the library again - this time apply for it through the service called special loans.
    Have you done that before? You're entitled to six books a year.
    SANDY
    Yes. No problem. That's what I'll do.
    TUTOR
    So, lots of useful work done.
    TUTOR
    So, let's look at some new targets. We'll start by having a chat about your Chapter One. I very much enjoyed reading it. Your written style is very clear and you've included lots of interesting descriptions of education in your target area. I've just got a couple of suggestions for some additional work.
    SANDY
    Of course. Could I just ask - what do you think I should call it?
    TUTOR
    Well, I'd go for something like Context ReviewQ26. What do you think?
    SANDY
    Well, short and to the point.
    TUTOR
    Exactly. Now, as regards specific areas to work on, I'd be quite interested to have a few more statistics about the schoolsQ27 in the different zones.
    SANDY
    Oh, that wouldn't be a problem. I can get them from the Internet.
    TUTOR
    Great, and although you did make a reference to quite a few different writers, I think you should aim to cite more works written later than 2000Q28.
    SANDY
    OK. That's more difficult, but I can try When do you want that done by?

    TUTOR
    Oh, it's not urgent. Um I should aim for the end of termQ29. But in the meantime, I think you should also be thinking about Chapter Two.
    SANDY
    Should I be drafting it already?

    TUTOR
    No, but I think you should note down its main sections.
    SANDY
    Yes. You know, I always find that the hardest part.

    TUTOR
    I always find it helpful to put some ideas on index cards.
    SANDY
    Yeah.
    TUTOR
    Um ... and then you can sort them, and even lay them out on the floor. It's a real help.
    SANDY
    Well, I'll certainly try it! When would the deadline be for that?
    TUTOR
    My advice would be to get it done before you embark upon the researchQ30. You can always change it later if you need to.
    SANDY
    OK. I'll get going on that then.
