Our first two workshops have provided an opportunity to learn more about writing blogs and conversation pieces, and writing for academic journals.
The first workshop held at the beginning of September, was facilitated by Professor Pat Thomson. The first part of the workshop provided an overview of blogging and the different forms blogs can take. For the remainder of the workshop, participants were able to work on a first draft of a blog post. The blog posts produced during this workshop will be appearing on this blog over the coming weeks.
The second workshop was held later in September, and was facilitated by Dr Gareth Johnson, the Editor-in-Chief of Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal. This was the first of a two part workshop about writing for academic journals. The second part will be held later in the year. The aim of this workshop was to learn more about academic writing and publishing, especially as we are producing content for a special issue of Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal. This special issue is anticipated to be published in 2022.
