GPLL437 - Peer-review (Doctoral): Social Sciences and Humanities

Peer-review is the cornerstone of academic assessment and provides a useful exercise to improve projects, proposals, and papers. In this workshop, we strive to improve scholarship applications for potential and current Doctoral students at Concordia University - in the social sciences and humanities (SSHRC, FRQSC).

Participants in this workshop will be expected to provide 2-3 pages of text from their draft applications to drive the peer-review process (submitted ~1 week prior to the meeting), and will subsequently have 5-6 days to provide feedback on the text from 2-3 other students (written feedback ~24h before the class, and verbal feedback within the actual workshop). This exercise can be done for virtually any section of the scholarship applications but will likely be most useful for research proposals or other “contribution” statements.

Note: Students are ultimately still responsible for ensuring their own applications conform to the instructions and standards laid out on by each agency for the specific funding program(s) they select.

Learning Objectives

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Gain insight to the peer-review process and start building a network of peers that can help with the development of scholarship applications.
2. Provide respectful peer-review feedback on scholarship application materials
3. Receive constructive feedback on their own application materials, which once addressed, could help to make their applications more competitive.

This workshop is not scheduled at this time.
