Writing is a craft and one of the key requirements in conveying any research. It is also a vital part of academia and requires creativity but also scientific robustness. ETHOS Lab acknowledges this desk-work as an analytical process that needs to be taken seriously and which is why we have weekly #shutupandwrite sessions on Thursdays from 9:30-11:30. The first session was Thursday September 14 2017 and the last session for the Fall17 semester is December 14.
This initiative was kicked-off by a thesis writing workshop by co-head of lab Rachel Douglas-Jones, also co-teaching the course ‘Writing Innovation Studio’. Rachel has successfully been organising #shutupandwrite sessions for ETHOS Lab researchers and refers to the blog ‘The Thesis Whisperer‘ by Dr. Inger Mewburn, Director of Research Training at the Australian National University for inspiration.
No matter what you are writing on – please join in the sessions.
When: Every Thursday
Where: ETHOS Lab, 1C05
