Online Workshop on Writing Integrative Literature Reviews in Professional and Technical Communication

Background: To introduce the community of authors for the IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication to the nature and methods for creating integrative literature reviews, we are holding a second introductory workshop.  

The first one, was a success, but many people who wanted to participate could not, because of scheduling conflicts and asked for a second session.

About the Workshop:  The goal of the workshop is to not only teach participants how to prepare an integrative literature review, but to help them start one and receive feedback on the work-in-progress (with the hope that the finished review will be submitted to the Transactions).  Some reading before the first four class sessions; research occurs in the gap between the fourth and fifth session and participants prepare an early draft before the sixth session. 

The workshop leader is Saul Carliner, Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication, Director of the Education Doctoral Program and Associate Professor at Concordia University in Montreal, and a past recipient of back-to-back Frank R. Smith Awards for Best Article in the peer-reviewed journal, Technical Communication. 

Who Should Attend:  Faculty, Researchers, PhD students, and advanced master’s students (who have completed a research methodology class) in Technical and Professional Communication or a Related Field.  

Schedule:  The next 6-session workshop is scheduled:

Thursday, April 26  11 AM – 12:15 pm Eastern
Thursday, May 3, 11 AM – 12:15 pm Eastern
Thursday, May 10, 11 AM – 12:15 pm Eastern

Thursday, June 7, 11 AM – 12:15 pm Eastern 

Thursday, June 28, 11 AM – 12:15 pm Eastern

Location:  Webinar using Adobe Connect.  

You’ll need a computer with a live internet connection at the time of the class.  (Sessions are not recorded.)

Fee:  No cost, but a commitment to (a) preparing a draft of a literature review during the course of the workshop and (b) submitting a completed integrative literature review to the Transactions for consideration within 9 months of the completion of the seminar.
