Activities

Workshops (Sept-Dec and Feb-May)

These writing workshops for CBS’s undergraduate and master’s students bring together the “seven disciplines” of Writing Process Reengineering and the “unfiltered” approach to peer feedback. There is no required preparation for the workshops, except perhaps to think of some topic you might want to write about.

Art of Learning Series (Sept-Nov)

In the fall, from late September to early November, we will be holding a series of informal talks for undergraduates and master’s students about the learning process. How can you get the most out of the resources and opportunities that a modern university setting provides? How can you acquire the knowledge you need, not just to pass your courses, but to succeed in your career?

Writing Process Reengineering (Nov 8, 15, & 29)

This four-week course is intended to introduce doctoral students and early-career researchers to the basic principles of Writing Process Reengineering. The course consists of two 3-hour seminars, a masterclass, and 20 hours of individual writing. It is organized around the composition of a roughly 8000-word draft research paper in the social sciences.

Craft of Research Series (Feb-Apr)

Throughout the spring, we will be holding series of weekly informal talks about the research process. The talks are intended for students who are working on their year-end projects, including their master’s dissertations.
