Led by Doug Bradley of the UCSB Writing Program, a panel of science and engineering faculty will share techniques and perspectives on utilizing writing to inform the research and discovery process (rather than just as a tool for communicating results).
Harnessing Writing to Impact Your Research
Monday, March 13
Elings Hall 1605
*Light refreshments provided*
Panelists: Deborah Fygenson (Physics), Doug McCauley (EEMB), Susannah Scott (ChemE)
Panelists will discuss how writing can contribute to the creative process of problem solving and even transform research setbacks into research opportunities. For example, strategies for using lab notebooks, manuscripts, and written correspondence to enhance your research, and for responding to unforeseen logistical and experimental challenges. Panelists will share lessons learned for collaborating on written works, getting published, and avoiding pitfalls, as well as, how you can harness these strategies to propel your research, creativity and your writing.
