CAEX 8045 - Doctoral Writing Workshop: Revising and Editing the Methods Section


(0 sem. cr.) Writing about the method or methods of study can be a challenge. It’s not easy to articulate variables, validity, or data analysis plans. Students who feel like they need some extra help or support with the writing component of their dissertation, project study, or doctoral study methods section should take this small-group workshop. With the help of the writing faculty member, students will spend 6 weeks advancing the writing of their methods section through tailored one-on-one writing instruction and supportive group work with their peers. Workshop students will get to know the required components of the methods section and have the opportunity to learn how to address common writing issues inherent in this section, including effectively explaining data collection and analysis, formatting APA-compliant tables and figures, and articulating ethical procedures and concerns associated with the study. Importantly, the instruction and feedback students receive will be anchored in their own work. The goal of this workshop is to help students make progress toward the completion of the methods section. If needed, the faculty member will help create a tailored plan based on students’ specific needs to ensure that they can continue to advance their draft.
