The West Australian Network for Dissemination (WAND) warmly invites to attend their second workshop in SoTL writing.

The focus of workshop two will be SoTL writing with the aim of completing an abstract. Participants do not need to have attended the first workshop to attend this event.  In recognition that people are at different stages of a SoTL project, the abstract may be for an initial research proposal or a journal article. Those planning to attend will be asked to complete a survey late-June to identify their SoTL topic (hopefully shaped through workshop one) and highlight key issues relating to SoTL writing. For example, the workshop can explore the kinds of voices SoTL authors use, identifying an audience, getting started, translating initial thoughts into finished writing and overcoming internal resistance to writing and revising.

Registration and tea/coffee:9.30 am 

Start:  9.45am. Welcome and introduction to the workshop 

Workshop:10.00am – 2.00pm. Includes an hour for lunch for networking and building relationships to facilitate collaboration and peer writing support. Light lunch provided.

Venue:460.2.031 Postgrad Teaching Space, Murdoch University, South Street Campus
