This Shop Talk helps acclimate writers to graduate-level writing expectations. It addresses graduate-level research writing with a focus on the general structure of research-based assignments such as research proposals and research studies for comprehensive exams, theses, or dissertations. Attendees will learn about the parts of these documents, the logic behind how they are written, and how to assess samples of research writing for their strengths and weaknesses in meeting the expectations of the genre. This will give attendees a hands-on experience with research writing at the graduate level and allow for direct application of the topics covered in the Shop Talk.
This Shop Talk falls under the Degree Success category for the Shop Talk Certificate of Completion.
