Make the Case for Your Research: Creating a Narration of Innovation

Thursday, July 21st 2016
IDeATe Studio A - Hunt Library 
12:00-1:00 p.m. 

This interactive workshop will teach you four "moves" that showcase how your research is an essential contribution to the field, in the sciences or humanities. Learn how to:

  • Transform your research into a compelling narrative
  • Highlight the impact and innovation of your work
  • Appeal to a non-specialist audience
  • Structure the introduction and abstract of your article 

This workshop will focus on the introduction and abstract of your journal article, but these well-established moves can also be applied to presentations, application materials, grant proposals, and more.  

Lunch will be provided - sign up here
