2013 Workshop Notes - These notes are designed to benefit students who were not able to attend, although they'll also be a good refresher for students who attended.
The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning annually invites doctoral students of planning working on their dissertation research to attend the late summer ACSP PhD Workshop. The Workshop attracts PhD students from planning programs from around the world to gather and discuss the practical details of creating, producing, distributing and consuming planning knowledge among scholars. Workshop participants will learn to conceive, organize, and present PhD-quality research to multiple audiences, including, most centrally, their peers. Students will advise one another as scholars pursuing unique research paths within a community of shared inquiry. The faculty work mainly as advisors and coaches. International students are welcome to apply. Check back for 2014 details.
