Writing Retreat: Using Evidence and Writing from Data. Facilitated by the University Writing Program
Start Date: 4/23/2021Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 4/23/2021End Time: 12:30 PM

Event Description

In collaboration with the Office of Research & Innovation and the Office of Faculty Affairs, the Social Science Research Committee (SSRC) will work with the University’s Writing Program (UWP) to offer a third writing retreat via Zoom.  In this 2.5-hour retreat, we again invite you to dedicate time to working on your own writing.

In the first hour, you will participate in a workshop about improving how you make evidence-based arguments in your writing and writing from data. Many of us are experts at generating and gathering data and research, and this workshop will focus on incorporating such evidence in your writing to develop positions and arguments. We will also discuss the practices and nuances of citation.

During the remainder of the retreat, you will have time to work on a writing project: To write! We will use Zoom so you can break out into smaller groups to create an open, studio-type environment during which you can write and talk with one another and us. This writing time is open, but it might be especially good to bring a writing project in which you have been struggling to incorporate your research.

If you are interested in joining the retreat, please REGISTER no later than April 23, 2021. We will send registered participants a Zoom link before the retreat.  Note this is a rescheduled event (originally scheduled in March) – you do not need to resubmit registration if you already did it in March.

Social Sciences and Humanities Research Committee (SSHRC) aims at building a vibrant social science research and humanities research community at Drexel University. We are open to faculty members from all academic fields.  If you are interested in joining the 365 Group (on Outlook) of the SSHRC to receive information related to social science research, please contact Brooklyn Daly, bmd88@drexel.edu.
