Topic outline

  • Research proposal writing, business, social sciences, humanities

    Information about Research proposal writing workshops, and a link to the EDGEx registration site can be found below. Please read through the workshop information before registering for workshops.

    Workshops are offered as a series of nine, two, or two-and-a-half hour workshops at City West and Magill campuses. It is important to attend all of the workshops in the series. The content covered in workshops with the same title is identical and you are welcome to attend a workshop in another series if you are unable to attend your regular series. Workshops involve facilitator-led presentations and activities, analysis of discipline examples, group or pair discussion of your research and research writing, and individual writing on your research proposal.

    The online resources linked from the right menu on this site cover the core messages covered in the face-to-face workshops. When you attend a face-to-face workshop, please read through the online resource that corresponds with the workshop before coming along. 

    In addition to accessing the online resources, external students can receive individual assistance on drafts of writing over email or telephone, with referral from a supervisor. If you are an external student and you would like individual assistance, please contact Wendy Bastalich. (Video recordings of the workshops are unfortunately not possible because the workshops are interactive, mostly consisting in large and small group discussion and individual work).

    It is important to register for workshops. Reminders and other information about workshops will be forwarded to your student email address. The facilitator may also communicate with you via your student email which is linked directly from the registration lists so please don't forget to check your student email if you use another email address more regularly. If you have registered, but find you will not be able to attend a workshop, please deregister at least two days before the workshop. It is important to deregister for any workshops you will not be able to attend, as facilitators plan workshops and make other important decisions affecting everyone in the group based on the registration numbers.
