Writng Your First Paper

Writing is hard, writing the first paper is often a tough experience for students and advisors. In this interactive seminar we explore habits that ease the process of writing the first research paper and that can be a huge time-saver for students and advisors These steps include deciding on the content, audience, and journal before you start writing, receiving and incorporating feedback on parts of the manuscript, common mistakes, and taking advantage of resources.

This workshop will be led by Roel Snieder. Roel Snieder is Professor of Professional Development Education at the Colorado School of Mines, as well as a licensed Freedom Coach. As a scientist, he worked for many years with people who tend to live in their head, relying on their analytical thinking. Roel has personally experienced the process of transformation to the fullness of living from the head and from the heart. Over the years he has counseled many people in this process and developed and taught classes on Wellness and on Science and Spirituality at Mines. Roel wrote a book on living a harmonious and fulfilling life for scientists and engineers, The Joy of Science: Seven Principles for Scientists Seeking Happiness, Harmony, and Success.
