Part 2 of 4 Part Series

Rhetoric for better reading and note-taking
To produce high impact research writing, we need to read and enage with published high impact research articles from within our field. Often, we read to find useful ideas and evidence, but rarely do we analyze our research literature for their use of rhetoric in composing and presenting ideas persuasively. By analyzing the rhetorical construction of research literature we are reading, we can learn how to better compose and present our own research ideas. By linking rhetoric to how we read and how we take notes and organize information and ideas, we take the first steps towards a better writing process.

In this webinar, you will learn how to identify rhetoric in published literature and how to link note-taking to idea composition for your own reserach writing process.

This webinar series uses a flipped classroom approach. Prior to the webinar, participants are expected to review a video and complete a brief activity while watching the video. The webinar is an opportunity to discuss ideas, ask questions, and learn from each other, all guided by a Ph. D. and Writing Advisor from the NMBU Writing Centre.

Please note - all webinars are presented in English.

Part 3 of 4 Part Series
Rhetoric for structured, cohesive writing

Scientific research writing requires structure. High impact writing requires logical structure, cohesive ideas, and a persuasive narrative. But as researchers, we are not educated to write narratives. A narrative is the story of your research, which needs to introduce what your research topic is and why your reserach is important. The narrative is how you introduce and conclude your research, and understanding the role of different sections of research writing can help us form logical connections from one section to another. Applying rhetoric further strengthens these connections to make a more impactful piece of writing.

In this webinar, you will be introduced to different narrative methods, and learn how to develop a cohesive narrative for an entire piece of writing and how to structure your ideas across the paper, within different sections, and across paragraphs and sentences using the idea of cohesion.

This webinar series uses a flipped classroom approach. Prior to the webinar, participants are expected to review a video and complete a brief activity while watching the video. The webinar is an opportunity to discuss ideas, ask questions, and learn from each other, all guided by a Ph. D. and Writing Advisor from the NMBU Writing Centre.

Ph.D. Webinar Series - Rhetoric for developing outlines

Interactive webinar, group activity and discussion over Zoom to improve your research writing skills.

Part 4 of 4 Part Series
Rhetoric for developing outlines

The pre-writing process is the hardest part of writing, and should culminate in an outline. An outline is a blueprint or map we use to guide our writing process, and without a good blueprint or map with clear instructions to guide our writing, we will become lost. Unfortunately, many research writers do not always produce thorough outlines, and instead they use the writing process as part of their pre-writing work - trying to organize their ideas and form logical connections and coherent narratives. Working without a well-defined outline is a cause of wasted time and additional stress. However, if you use your time during the pre-writing stage to develop a concrete outline for your writing process, the drafting and revision stage becomes much smoother and easier. But, how do we build an outline? Are there templates that we can use? What if my narrative differs from basic outline templates?

In this webinar, you will learn why outlining is important, and how you can customize your own research template by linking your desired writing format to how other authors have written. By learning how to break-down published literature, you can learn the rhetorical elements that can be applied in different sections, you can develop your own outline template, and you can improve the sturcture and coherence of your ideas as you develop your outline.

This webinar series uses a flipped classroom approach. Prior to the webinar, participants are expected to review a video and complete a brief activity while watching the video. The webinar is an opportunity to discuss ideas, ask questions, and learn from each other, all guided by a Ph. D. and Writing Advisor from the NMBU Writing Centre.
