This Structured Writing Day aims to help students in the Sustainable Growth, Management and Economic Productivity Pathway progress with writing projects in a supportive environment. Most of the time will be used for writing, with everyone present focused on writing, including the facilitator.
Discussion will be encouraged throughout breaks and lunch to help generate solutions to writing problems, develop drafts, and by extension lead to research-oriented conversations. Students will gain the opportunity to write in a supportive environment, and will produce writing that will be of use in their PhD. More broadly they will develop research skills relating to developing good writing habits and research output capacity. Discussion in breaks about writing and research will help students to develop communication skills in relation to their research.
