Full Summary: In this workshop, graduate students will learn the basic elements that go into a communication project.

In this workshop, you will learn the basic elements that go into a communication project: planning and conducting research, note-taking, brainstorming, outlining, drafting, creating graphics, conversing with sources, revising, and presenting. You will learn the benefits of developing a preliminary research question and statement of purpose before writing. Your facilitator will offer examples of effective and ineffective questions and statements; share creative techniques for exploring and developing your research question; demonstrate good practices in organizing your research and writing; and suggest key resources for support during your composition process. As a result of this workshop, you will be able to begin your written or oral project with the confidence that you are making the most of your time.

This workshop is directed towards graduate students. Postdocs are welcome as walk-ins as space allows.
