The purpose of the tutorial is to discuss the doctoral student’s choices and reporting of the research upon finalizing the thesis. The focus is usually on explicating how the study was conducted, and what are the main findings and contributions of the study, and how to present them in a dissertation. Often the reading material has been a draft of kappa – that is, the introductory essay to the thesis – or a research paper. The learning outcomes are potential revisions to the dissertation structure or contents, and information to further support the student's choices presented in the final dissertation. The student can participate in the tutorial when she or he is ready for reporting on these choices according to the dissertation advisor’s assessment.
