Part I of the Graduate Research Communication series is intended for masters students and early stage PhD students that are interested in learning foundational research communications skills. Learning objectives for Part I of the Research Communications Series are for students by the end of the series to be able to:
- employ best practices when designing and delivering a presentation, including a research seminar
- write clear scholarly compositions
- comprehend the purpose and format of each section of a research manuscript
- differentiate the various steps in the research manuscript journal submission and peer review process
More information about both parts of the Graduate Research Communications Series can be found on the program website.
Registration is required. Each part has separate registrations. Participants are expected to attend at least two sessions and will receive a certificate of completion for meeting this attendance requirement. Registered participants will have access to workshop materials, including presentation slides.
There will be no formal assessments during part I of the series, however, participants will be asked to complete an evaluation survey following part I of the series to provide feedback, to gauge quality of each session, and to evaluate whether learning objectives were achieved.
