BIOL 4950: Directed Research Writing Support

Are you thinking about signing up for WI-directed research this semester?  Writing up your research can be incredibly fulfilling, but it can also be hard to know where to start. This semester, EEB Ph.D. candidate and Student Writing Support consultant Meredith Steck is offering a 1-credit writing support course (BIOL 4950) where she will take you through each step of writing your directed research paper. All assignments and deadlines will directly contribute to the paper you are already required to write by the end of the semester. 

The course will provide:

  • Built-in in deadlines to help you stay on track and get feedback from your research advisor
  • Explicit writing instruction for each section of a scientific paper
  • A community of peers also engaged in the writing process who can offer support and feedback

There are two sections for this course, which will be graded on a pass/fail basis.

  • Thursdays 9:35-10:25am (St. Paul - Ruttan Hall B42)
  • Thursdays 3:35-4:25pm (Minneapolis - Bruininks 131A)
