The CCUGH English Writing Workshop 2017
Tue, May 30, 2017, 8:30 AM – Fri, Jun 2, 2017, 4:00 PM CST
This is an intensive writing workshop aiming to improve proficiency of writing and publishing research papers among young researchers working in the global health field. It will take place at Duke Kunshan University and consists of two parts: general lectures for one day and hands-on training for three days. The general lectures will be open to a large number of interested audiences and will cover topics on manuscript writing and publishing skills (May 31, the 2nd day of the workshop). The hands-on training will last for 3 days (May 30, June 1 and June 2) and will be open only to up to 15 participants. This part will include master classes, group revisions, and one-on-one mentoring. The master classes will introduce practical writing skills by sections in a typical academic paper: introduction, methodology, results and discussion. Group revisions follow the master class to discuss and critique the examples from trainees on specific section in small groups (3-4 persons per group). One-on-one mentoring will be provided by the four instructors to give tailored suggestions to each trainee.
Global Health Research Center of Duke Kunshan University, chair institution of the CCUGH, is responsible for the design and organization of workshop’s technical program.
