CAEX 8020 - Doctoral Writing Workshop: Revising and Editing the Introduction
(0 cr.) This small-group workshop is for doctoral students who have a working draft of their dissertation, project, or doctoral study proposal but find themselves needing writing guidance and support with the proposal’s introduction.
With the help of the writing faculty member, workshop participants will spend 6 weeks advancing the draft of the introduction through tailored one-on-one writing instruction and supportive group work with the students’ peers. Students will get to know the required components of the introduction and have the opportunity to learn how to describe their study, its purpose, and its intentions, as well as address common writing issues associated with the introduction, such as writing a strong problem statement, articulating the gap in the literature or practice, applying correct usage of APA and source citations, and overcoming writer’s block. Importantly, the instruction and feedback that 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 introduction. As needed, the writing faculty member will help create a tailored plan based on students’ specific needs to ensure that they can continue to advance their draft.
