WORKSHOPS AND RETREATS

Graduate

Abstracts: Writing

Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 10am – 12pm PT

This evidence-based workshop introduces researchers to two typical structures of abstracts, while accounting for differences in disciplines and purposes. Participants will write or revise a draft abstract during dedicated writing time and receive feedback from the facilitator. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.

Lay Summaries: Writing

Tuesday, June 1, 2021, 10am – 12pm PT

This workshop introduces graduate 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. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research project underway.
