BAICE/Compare will be running a Writers’ Workshop Programme at Ain Shams University, Cairo in December 2017. The programme is intended for those based in Egypt and neighbouring countries and consists of three component parts: a Student Workshop, a Writers’ Workshop and a Symposium.
Student Workshop (17 December 2017)
Converting doctoral research into articles for publication can be a challenging task. This workshop, hosted by Dr. Rasha Kamal and Dr. Ashour Amry is an opportunity to think about writing up the data you have or are collecting for publication. It is primarily for PhD students researching in the social sciences. The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Anna Magyar and Prof. Anna Robinson-Pant from the University of East Anglia, UK, both experienced facilitators of academic writing workshops and writing for publication. As former Editor of Compare (BAICE’s journal), Prof. Robinson-Pant launched the Compare writing mentoring programme for new academics, which has now been running for 10 years.
Writers’ Workshop (18 and 19 December 2017)
We are offering a writing for publication programme for researchers in Egypt and the region who are working in the field of educational research. The programme consists of a two-day workshop and a follow-up programme, during which participants work towards submitting an article to Compare with the help of mentors.
Symposium ‘Building a Research Culture’ (20 December 2017)
We are inviting participation from senior scholars from social science departments in higher education institutions within Egypt and the region. Applicants should be in a position to promote and support academic writing and publishing in their institutions. The symposium is an opportunity for participants to develop a network of resources, ideas and support to build the culture of academic writing and publishing in their institution.
