Strategies for Clarifying and Organizing Your Ideas Before You Write – Online Workshop

September 21 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm EDT

This online workshop is taught by Dr. Jane Freeman

This workshop is designed to help you clarify in your own mind the content and structure of your next proposal BEFORE you begin to write. Participants will be introduced to a range of strategies for organizing their ideas and will be encouraged to consider which strategy works best given their own learning style and timeline. Drawing on techniques from classical rhetoric for developing and organizing ideas, the workshop will introduce strategies to help students investigate and organize their ideas at both the pre-writing and mid-writing stages. While most examples will be drawn from proposals, the material covered will also be relevant to research papers and theses.

This is the second 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.
