On the heels of the recent 50th anniversary conference at Dartmouth focused on research methods and methodologies in writing studies, we are excited to announce the next Dartmouth Summer Seminar for Writing Research.
Sixth Annual Dartmouth Summer Seminar for Writing Research
Save the dates! July 30 - August 11, 2017
“The Summer Seminar was one of the most rewarding professional experiences of my career.” (previous participant)
The 2017 Dartmouth Summer Seminar for Writing Research is designed for writing faculty from all types of higher education venues who are beginning to work on data-driven research about writing in higher education contexts, and who would like an intensive, high-powered two weeks to work on that research, review the best approaches and methods, consult directly with experts, and network long-term with a cohort of other researchers. Guided interaction about participants’ projects is offered in the months leading up to the Seminar. The Seminar itself offers a quiet, resource-rich environment, coursework, small-group discussion and exchange, individual consultation with Seminar leaders, time to work alone or in groups on research projects, and a concluding presentation to the group with feedback from team leaders.
We encourage both individuals and research groups or teams to apply.
The Seminar coursework covers a range of topics, including data segmenting and coding, statistics, statistical analysis, effective literature reviews, research ethics, and so on. Special-interest topics are presented based on participants’ projects.
If you’ve been asking yourself any of the following questions, this is the seminar for you:
