IN PERSON: Research Proposals: How to get going, and keep going (REPEAT)

 

 About this workshop

 

This workshop is an introduction to the genre of proposal writing.  It aims to prepare and provide participants with the why, what, and how of proposal writing focusing on the aim, purpose, and process of generating an academic research proposal. The workshop aims to help students develop a draft outline, and strategies to keep going – clarity, conciseness, and coherence.  It will also address aspects of genre, audience and purpose towards ideas for possible research questions.

 

What previous attendees have said about this workshop:

  • "I had no idea how to tackle the research proposal and now I have a much clearer roadmap and framework."
  • "We talked a lot about writing the introduction and I think it made me more confident to follow the guidelines given in the class."
  • "Session was super awesome and very informative."
