Graduation: Challenge Accepted

By Alexander de Haan, Elianne de Regt

How are you going to make sure that your graduation represents you and everything that you are capable of, instead of what all students in your program can do? The only way to do this is to make your thesis entirely your project. And, the only way to do that is to continuously take initiative, stay active, and, most importantly, stay in charge of your work. This book will challenge you and your current perspective on your upcoming graduation project. In seven chapters, the book's authors offer their views, ideas, and practical tips of what it means to be in charge of one's own graduation, how to benefit from it, and what 'being the leader' of the project actually entails. The book will encourage readers to create a realistic and very workable graduation attitude by using a combination of practical tips and tricks, questions, small exercises, and examples from both students and teachers who have been through the process of graduation. Contents include: Graduation: Challenge Accepted * What Stories and Myths Exist about Graduation? * Are You in Graduation-Performing Modus? * What Does It Take to get People on Board? * Who Is in Charge of Your Graduation Project? * How to Deal with the Unavoidable Setbacks? * How Do You Envision the Final Steps? * Graduated: What Is Next? [Subject: Higher Education]
