Features that support social learning and global learning (posts, polls, Social Portfolio, Anar Seed Reward System, Global Classmates, engagement analytics, the CN mobile app, etc.) will be demonstrated. Best ways to integrate the CN to Oncourse and Canvas as a complementary tool will also be explored.

Research: Scientific Writing from the Reader's Perspective with Dr. George Gopen

Tuesday, July 28, 2015 | Walter Hall (R3) 203/205 | 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Register »  | Organizer: CTL & OFAPD and Presenter: George Gopen

As competition for external funding becomes more challenging, getting one’s scholarly work successfully published is more important than ever. Dr. Gopen’s approach is based on a single idea: learning to write for the reader allows the writer to control what readers learn.

This year, Dr. George Gopen will present this workshop on Tuesday, July 28. If you are planning to attend the advanced workshop on Wednesday, July 29 you MUST attend this workshop or have attended one in the years prior.

If you would like to register for Wednesday, July 29, please visit here.

As in past years, Dr. Gopen will also conduct hour-long, individualized consultations. ONLY faculty members who participate in the day-long event will have access to the individual consultation registration. Instructions will be sent to participants after their registration for the workshop is complete.

More about Dr. Gopen’s original approach to scientific writing can be found in his article, The Science of Scientific Writing.
