As a scholar, you have the opportunity to make unique contributions to the discourse around topics that matter to you. To do so, you need to grow your scholarly voice. In this interactive webinar, we will teach you how to write in ways that help your voice be heard. Learn how to make claims that are supported by evidence. Discover the power of paraphrasing, and finally, learn how to synthesize (not just summarize) literature. We will both model and provide opportunities to practice these three scholarly writing skills.
