Clear Thinking, Clear Writing: Communicating Clearly to Your target Audience(s) – Online Workshop

October 5, 2020 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EDT

This online workshop is taught by Dr. Jane Freeman

Grant proposals require you to communicate a lot of information, in a limited space, to multiple audiences, without ambiguity. Such communication demands clear writing and an active awareness of the needs of both specialist and generalist readers. In this workshop we will examine some of the most common stylistic and grammatical mistakes found in proposals, and consider the ways in which strategic proofreading can help you to identify not only the errors in your writing but also the errors in your logic.

This is the fourth of 4 workshops in the Developing & Pitching a Research Project workshop series. These four workshops are designed for graduate students who are preparing to write, or who are in the process of writing, either a thesis or grant proposal. This workshop series is unlike our other series in two ways: all of the workshops will be taught by the same instructor, and the workshops will build on one another in order to allow students to get an overview of the proposal preparation process. Each workshop will function both independently and as part of the sequence, and students are welcome to come to any or all of the workshops. 

This workshop will be offered online. Please register to receive a link to join the workshop at the scheduled time. If you are not able to register online (i.e. if you are not a currently registered U of T graduate student), please contact Lauren at sgs.gcac@utoronto.ca and she will register you manually.
