Graduate Seminar : Study Guide
By: Annie A. Parmis, Precious C. Domingo
This Graduate Seminar Study Guide is specifically made for graduate students who have Thesis Writing in their degree program. Enrolling in this course (Graduate Seminar) means one is to deal with writing seminar paper, seminar paper presentation, making research poster, and writing research article for journal publication. The main “venue” for these requirements for application purposes is attending academic conferences. Moreover, the ultimate goal of this course is getting research articles published in academic journals.
“Going places” literally and figuratively along with the “meeting of the minds” take place when one has the opportunity to participate in academic conferences. Aside from that, having a “sound engagement” with conference speakers, guests, presenters, and other participants help develop one’s intellectual and social skills in public communication. By the way, having a photo opportunity with experts in the field and guest celebrities while attending academic conferences is something to look forward to no matter what. All these things among others would be more meaningful if one has something to present in plenary or parallel sessions. This Graduate Seminar Study Guide aims to encourage graduate students to share their expertise either in academic conferences or via journal publications
