Literature Reviews: Mapping the Scholarly Conversation

Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 10am – 12pm PT

This workshop introduces researchers to the typical structure of the literature review in research article introductions and theses, while accounting for variation in communicative purposes, audiences, and disciplinary differences. Participants will write or revise a draft section of a literature review during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from facilitator and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.

Lay Summaries: Going Public With Your Research

Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 10am – 12pm PT

This workshop introduces graduate and postdoctoral researchers to some of the ways in which lay summaries differ from scientific abstracts, the multiple purposes of lay summaries, and how lay summaries enhance science communication. Participants will write or revise a draft lay summary during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from the facilitator and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.
