Advanced Academic Writing

This 10-week course begins with five weeks of grammar and other fundamentals, then continues to five weeks of style, tone, framing, and other critical skills. This course accommodates faculty, postdocs, and final-year graduate students. We will operate via a combination of Zoom sessions and a Google Classroom environment. You should expect 1 hour a week of 'classroom' time and roughly 1 hr to complete outside practice activities most weeks.

Please select Pay in Person; invoices will be issued and zoom link sent after course meets minimum enrollment.

Summer session begins May 12 at 9 AM US Eastern time on Thursdays. It may have a skipped week in early August; TBD once course fills.

Methods Cafe

Join us in the Methods Cafe for casual, non-technical introductions to many of today's hottest research techniques. Spanning both qualitative and quantitative methods, presenters will provide a general overview of their technique, its ideal uses, and some plusses and minuses for potential users to think about. Sessions are Tuesdays at 3-4 PM and Fridays at 12 noon Eastern time starting May 20. Click here for more details, the presenter schedule, and a link to add the series to your virtual calendar.
