Participants will also discuss how to manage the stress that often pervades the life of PhD students and share strategies for overcoming writer's block and procrastination. Additionally, discussion about selecting and working with committees will provide a space for sharing about and learning how to communicate with faculty members about participants' research and writing.
1 PM - 4 PM Navigating the PhD: Writing Processes & Strategies for Academic Writing
In this 3-hour workshop, the focus will be on writing processes and practices. The PhD programs at MSU require written comprehensive exams, dissertation proposals, and dissertations. In the workshop, participants will explore and share their current writing practices and be given practical writing and revision strategies. The latter half of the workshop will focus on developing a plan for approaching comprehensive exams or the dissertation (depending on the student's current needs). Such a plan will help students develop goals, ask questions, and address writing strengths and limitations to successfully complete their degrees.
