Read like a Writer, Write like a Reader!

Monday, March 20, 1-2 p.m.

Want to be a more active and intentional reader? If so, join us for this discussion of ways to strengthen your comprehension and engagement while reading. From assessing and selecting the best approach for the reading situation to recognizing a text’s central ideas and relating that content to larger scholarly conversations, we’ll offer strategies that you can apply across your academic and everyday reading.

Working With Sources in Your Writing

Thursday, April 6, 11 a.m.-noon

Including information from published sources is an important part of academic writing, but it can feel tricky to master. This workshop will review how to fairly represent source material in your writing, clearly place others’ ideas in conversation with your own, and appropriately credit sources.

Making Abstract Writing Less Abstract

Monday, April 17, 1-2 p.m.

Have you just finished a writing project and are unsure of how to express it in an abstract? The genre of abstract writing can be difficult, and the abstract can feel like too little space to display the entirety of your essay. Develop the skills necessary to summarize your argument, highlight key ideas and prioritize the most important information in your abstract. Additionally, learn how to effectively organize this information with concise and professional language.

Essential Strategies for Oral Presentations and Combating Anxiety

Friday, April 21, 11 a.m.-noon

This workshop offers strategies for delivering effective, memorable presentations. Topics include how to reduce speech anxiety, engage with your audience while speaking, and craft attention-grabbing introductions and memorable conclusions. Panelists will offer advice regarding participants’ greatest public speaking fears.
