Communicating Research Workshop Series

Supporting Graduate Students as Contributing Scholars and Professionals

Our programs promote strategies for success as well as understanding of values and approaches both shared across the academy and particular to students’ own fields and scholarly goals. In our Communicating Research workshop series, we collaborate with other campus units to cover an expanding list of topics on ways to communicate research effectively to a range of audiences and across diverse media.

Spring 2024 Workshops

Foundations of Good Academic Writing

In this online workshop, we analyze problem areas typical to academic writing (i.e., lack of established significance, no narrative arc, cumbersome sentences, etc.) and deconstruct how these bad habits undermine the effectiveness of your work. Then we will outline several key characteristics that make for clear, compelling writing so that you leave with a checklist of skills to work on to achieve success with journal articles, seminar papers, proposals, and other academic texts.

Thursday, March 14, 2024, Noon - 1:00 pm. Register here to receive the zoom link.

Academic vs. Proposal Writing

One of the biggest mistakes academics can make when they begin crafting proposals is to adopt the same style they use for other academic writing. Proposal-writing requires a different style and a different set of writing skills. This workshop will clarify these characteristics and skills, and provide samples of what they look like in successful proposals.
