Spring 2018 Labor/Applied Microeconomics Student Workshops


The workshop meets on Mondays, 12:20-1:40pm in Gardner Room 211.

The purpose of this course is to receive feedback on on-going dissertation and research work and to test presentation skills. This objective is obtained at least in three ways:

  1. By actively engaging in the workshop both as a presenter and a prepared and vocal participant, a student improves his or her ability to organize thoughts and to discuss ones’ own and other research.
  2. Participation in the workshop allows the student to associate, correct, or avoid similar problems in one’s own research, and to learn appropriate presentation and research skills by observing and engaging others.
  3. Participation in the workshop provides the student with feedback on his or her own research in a relaxed, but formal, setting from student colleagues and multiple faculty members who may or may not be dissertation committee members.
