Managing feedback on writing

Doctoral writers put a lot of time and energy into producing text - thinking, crafting and perfecting the expression of complex ideas. Then they send it to supervisors and are often confused and discouraged by receiving lots of suggestions for improvement. This workshop explores the processes of feedback, why it can be so challenging for both HDRs and supervisors, and offers strategies for eliciting helpful advice on writing.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Help supervisors understand what individual writers need
  • Manage feedback from multiple sources
  • Give and receive constructive feedback
  • Identify ways to integrate feedback into writing processes

This workshop series is available to all HDR students. It is also part of the Science, Health and Medicine Career Development Framework program and can be counted as a valid activity. All these workshops will help you earn CDS points!
