27.09.2024 09:00 - 17:00

Description and objectives In a university setting, academic writing is a necessary skill to master. Often, proof of this mastery is measured in the form of publishing in peer-reviewed journals. However, the publication process can be daunting for authors, new or experienced. Knowing more about the process can help writers better tailor their work to the specific journal sought and increase their chances of success in publishing.

After this workshop, participants will better understand:
  • Who the players are in the publication process o How to cite their work to avoid plagiarism, boost credibility, and support their arguments o How to choose the right journal for their work o How to adapt a paper that has been reviewed to increase their chances of publication o What to include in cover and response letters to best communicate with reviewers and editors.

Although these topics are germane to many different scientific domains, this workshop will be aimed at publishing in the human and social sciences. APA norms will be referenced as examples for citation and avoiding language biases. By the end of the workshop, participants with all levels of writing and publishing experience should be able to confront the process more confidently in order to increase their chances of publication in peer-reviewed journals.
Presentation, discussion, and interaction in small and large groups will be offered to exchange experiences and tailor the workshop to the participants’ level(s) of experience with the publication process.

CYCLE d’événements:
Ally training for men: How to stand up against discrimination, sexism and bias

Description and objectives
Has it ever happened to you that you witnessed a situation where somebody got treated
unfairly and you felt bad because you did not know how to react? Or did a female or
minority colleague of yours complain about being discriminated and you did not know
how to support them?

In this workshop participants will explore how they can stop being passive bystanders and become active upstanders and allies in situations where others are confronted with discrimination, sexism and bias. In this workshop participants will learn that they can have a positive impact in challenging situations and leave with a toolbox of smart intervention strategies. Knowing how to speak-up for others will also help you to learn to speak up for yourself with courage and confidence.

The workshop will focus on three elements:
  • Awareness: How to recognize (subtle) discrimination and understand why it is harmful not just for the targets, but the entire team or organization.
  • Obstacles: Why is speaking up difficult.
  • Skills: How to listen, learn and engage towards positive change of behavior without creating aggression and defensiveness.

Approach This workshop is highly interactive. We will play a simulations game to kick off an open discussion on participants’ own experiences. They will learn from each other and get introduced to various techniques like centering or active listening, that will help them to become fearless and skillful allies for a more human workplace of dignity, equality and innovation.
