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 normally have weekly #shutupandwrite sessions.
Mondays 13:00-15:00 in ETHOS Lab (3A30 at ITU).
The first session will be on Monday 18 February 2019.
All welcome – register here!
This initiative was introduced to the IT-University by co-head of lab Rachel Douglas-Jones, also co-teaching the course ‘Writing Innovation Studio’. Rachel has successfully been organizing #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 and read more about the advantages with making them part of your study/academic rhythms.
