WCSS 8040 - Doctoral Writing Workshop: Revising and Editing the Methods Section
(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 Methods section.
With the help of the writing faculty member, workshop participants will spend 6 weeks advancing the draft of the Methods section 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 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 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 Methods section. 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.
