3rd Annual Naylor Workshop for Undergraduate
Research in Writing Studies
September 9 -11, 2016
York College of Pennsylvania
Keynote: Dr. Jessica Enoch, University of Maryland
The Naylor Workshop for Undergraduate Research in Writing Studies is an opportunity for students of any experience level to grow as skilled researchers. Over the course of this weekend-long workshop, students develop their own research projects by engaging in seminars on composition research, collaborating with themed teams of experienced scholars and peer researchers, and crafting research artifacts during independent time.
After sharing their ideas, their experience, and their spirit of inquiry, Naylor scholars return to their home institutions ready to conduct research. We are happy to report that Naylor Scholars have gone on to present their research at local and regional events, including the Conference on College Composition and Communication in 2015–and several more will be presenting in 2016.
By attending the Naylor Workshop, students can expect to:
Become part of a local network of undergraduate students from varying institutions, including experienced and new undergraduate researchers guided by mentor faculty members.
Conference one-on-one with writing researchers in the fields of composition, rhetoric, or writing center studies to discuss research ideas, goals, and methodologies.
Engage in workshops to assess the quality of research, design a research question, and learn and practice qualitative and quantitative research methods.
Utilize independent workshop time to construct or develop a research study.
Compile authentic feedback and recommendations from writing researchers and students.
