I took the GRAD 6210/8210 Graduate-Level Writing for International Students
led by Dr. Lisa Russell-Pinson
in Fall 2021. In our first assingment, we are asked to interview a scholar, as well as to conduct research on our own, to learn about academic writing in my discipline, finance. Gratefully, I talked to Dr. Gene Lai
, Professor in Risk Management and Insurance, and read the well-known Writing Tips for Ph. D. Students
by John H. Cochrane
As an international student/scholar, writing is perhaps one of the obstales that continue to challenge my academic confidence. As hilighted in the GRAD 6210/8210 course website, "Writing is a skill that can be learned and continuously improved through research-based instruction, ongoing practice, and constructive feedback."
You can find the presentation slides here
, and feel free to share it with others who are faced with similar struggles in writing.
