Spring 2017 OUR Workshops
Making the Most of an Academic Conference
Monday, Feb. 27, 2-3 p.m. in FAC 332
This 1-hour workshop will help students strategically approach their first academic conference. We’ll orient students to how conferences are set up; how to get the most out of the sessions they attend; how to network with peers and with established scholars; and how to prepare for their own presentation without losing sight of the other benefits of attending a conference. This workshop counts as a Research Communication workshop for the OUR Research Training Certificate.
Academic Publishing for Student Researchers
Tuesday, Apr. 11, 2-3 p.m. in FAC 330
Before you become involved in writing up research findings for publication, get an overview of how academic publishing works. We’ll discuss the options that student researchers can consider for submitting their work for publication, and we’ll orient you to the submission and revision process. This workshop counts as a Research Communication workshop for the OUR Research Training Certificate.
