EDRA47Raleigh Graduate Student Workshop

EDRA47Raleigh Graduate Student Workshop


The Graduate Student Workshop is an initiative of the Environmental Design Research Association designed to provide a forum for graduate students to present and discuss their ongoing research with senior mentors in environment-behavior design research.  The purpose of the workshop is to strengthen and further thesis/dissertation work, as well to support the development of networks for young researchers, both with senior researchers and with other graduate students.
 
All students engaged in environment-behavior research and/or design at a graduate level are invited to apply to participate.
The 6th annual graduate student workshop will take place on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 in Raleigh, North Carolina concurrent with the EDRA47 Pre-Conference Intensives. During the day-long workshop each student selected will present their work during a 45-minute time slot which includes 10 minutes presentation of their thesis/dissertation work to date followed by 30-35 minutes of feedback and discussion with mentors.
 
These extended workshop session are intended to provide focused feedback on the specific work of the presenter as well as general direction related to furthering and improving graduate-level work. 
Workshop sessions will also be interspersed with common plenary sessions on additional topics of interest to all graduate students such as: publishing during and after your dissertation, or preparing for the job search. 
 
Students accepted to present and/or attend the Graduate Student Workshop are expected to commit to the full day of the workshop which would then preclude them from attending other Intensives sessions. 
 
All students accepted to participate in the workshop as either presenters or observers are also expected to be registered for the full conference, or else to have a one-day registration for the day of the Intensives.
 
The number of student presenters is limited to 18 students.  However, up to 30 spaces will be available for other students as observers to attend and participate in all workshop sessions, including all plenary and student presentation sessions.
