Then, there’s the DP… not knowing exactly what you are expected to be doing …and assuming everybody else does know what they are supposed to be doing. The ARC is offering a series of monthly lunchtime DP groups where you can get help researching or thinking about your project, get tips on writing a DP and get encouragement.
