Writing your Research
University of Michigan School of Public Health
1690 SPH I, 1415 Washington Heights Ann Arbor, MI 48109-2029

Designed for students enrolled in Biostatistics 699, this workshop aims to support graduate students across disciplines in SPH as they transition to  graduate-level research writing and begin to take on new roles as collaborative writers on research projects. During this two-hour workshop, participants will discuss strategies to embrace “not knowing” as part of the writing process and will practice using high-intensity, short-term writing strategies to engage and articulate the elements of their research project, design, and findings. Participants will also have an opportunity to ask about individual challenges they are facing as they evolve their writing practices for the rigors of scientific inquiry and explanation. Students should expect to leave with writing scaffolds and drafted elements to support their writing throughout the semester. -Designing a Writing Plan that Reflects the Research Process -Beginning with Not Knowing -Identifying Resources and Developing a Research Question -Reporting Interim Analysis and Final Results -Collaborative Writing Strategies that Work
