As graduate students know all too well—even when it is rewarding—writing is hard. That’s why we’ve designed this 3-part workshop series. Learn how to make your writing process and product more effective over a free dinner.
Managing Your Process
Tuesday, Nov. 19th, 5-6:30 pm
Refine your writing practices over pizza! Make your writing process and product more effective during this discussion-based, hands-on workshop. During the first half of this workshop, you will reflect on your writing practices and work with consultants to identify approaches for refining both your writing process and product. During the second half, you will apply what you learned with the support of writing tutors, so be sure to bring along a current writing project!
Managing Your Sources
Wednesday, Nov. 20th, 5-6:30 pm
Come for sandwiches and stay to learn about source management! During this interactive session, you will learn strategies for tackling challenges related to locating and managing sources. Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of different citation management tools (e.g., Zotero, RefWorks, Mendeley), select a reference manager that best fits your research needs, and begin (or further develop!) your reference library. We will have experts on hand to help. Learn how you can save time in your research process.
Managing Your Feedback
Thursday, Nov. 21st, 5-6:30 pm
Join us for food and a judgment-free zone as we think about the next steps after receiving feedback. We know that the process of revision can sometimes be complicated by reader or adviser feedback (e.g., not having enough, having too much, or concern that your goals don't align with those of your adviser) and this workshop is designed to help you develop strategies for understanding and managing feedback in ways that will enable you to move forward productively.
RSVP for one, two, or all three sessions.
Sessions are open to all AS&E graduate students and postdocs. All others welcome if space permits. Questions? Contact Liz: firstname.lastname@example.org.
