Doctoral student writing development workshop

15 August, 2016 - 09:00 to 13:00
Building 39A, Room 201

Workshop focus: To demonstrate the reverse engineering approach to writing a journal article through an interactive personalised workshop. 


There will be senior academics present who will act as mentors throughout the workshop.

Workshop outcome: At the end of the workshop, participants will have a full draft of the structure of their article that reflects the requirements of the target journal.

Requirements:  To participate fully in this workshop, attendees must have a journal article in progress.  This means basic literature conducted, target journal selected, data analysis complete (or conceptual framework developed).

Participants need to bring the following:
-        Laptop
-        Printed copies of three articles from the target journal that have been published in the last 5 years which use the same analysis technique (or conceptual approach)
-        Electronic copies of any past drafts of the article, data analysis, literature review

Preparation: Participants to complete the attached powerpoint which summarises their article and send to Dr Jo Previte to collate.

Structure of workshop:
-        Introductions
-        Brief overview of reverse-engineering process
-        Lightening talks (each participant speaks on their topic for no longer than 3 minutes using the attached powerpoint slide) .  Clarification questions are asked of the participants by the mentors present.
-        Reverse engineering process is outlined, at each step the participants will be asked to undertake the step on their own paper.
-        For the remaining time, participants will be able to work on their paper individually and ask mentors for assistance when needed.


Morning Tea and Lunch will be provided
