|The 7th Annual Graduate Student Workshop|
DATE: May 31, 2017
The Graduate Student Workshop is an initiative of the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) 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
The 7th annual Graduate Student Workshop will take place on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 in Madison, WI. The workshop will run concurrently with the EDRA48 Pre-Conference Intensives.
During the day-long workshop each student selected will present their work during a 45-minute time slot which includes 10-minute 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 thesis/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.
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.
Students interested in presenting their research during the workshop are requested to submit a short application form by Tuesday, February 21, 2017. Notices of acceptance will be issued by Tuesday, March 7, 2017. Those students wishing to register to attend as an observer can do so during the regular conference registration process.
Any questions regarding the workshop or the application procedure should be directed to Karen Kim, EDRA Student Representative to the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you in Madison on May 31!
