Abstract: Reading and writing are the two most important activities one undertakes as a doctoral student, but many students approach these activities in a haphazard and unorganized way wasting precious time and energy. In my presentation, I’ll share specific strategies for keeping your reading and writing activities organized so that everything you read and write works toward at least two end goals (i.e. conference presentations, coursework, dissertation, publications).
