Writing for Development (Midlands)
Date: 03/02/22
Duration: 14:30-16:30
Location: University of Nottingham

Do you want to know more about development concepts and principles, and how they apply to your research? Then this is the right workshop for you!

In this workshop you will learn about:

  • The main actors and institutions in International Development.
  • The skills and expertise that are required as a researcher working in the field of International Development.
  • Using language and communication (and typical language faux pas!) in International Development.
  • The factors that impede development progress.
  • The practical tips and frameworks you can learn and use for writing in development.

You will leave the workshop with a holistic overview of writing for development and will have practised making connections and intersections between your research and International Development. The skills and learning you will gain in this workshop will be useful to you whichever course of study you are undertaking.

The CSC’s Leaders in Sustainable Development programme of workshops focus on professional and practical skills and are designed to be interactive, with small groups of Scholars and Fellows taking part in each event.
