What makes a good research proposal? This workshop aims to answer this question through discussion of what your research topic is about and why it is worth pursuing. You will have an opportunity to:


  • generate ideas related to your research topic, via freewriting, defining essay terms and discussing in pairs
  • start outlining your project, by responding to a question-based grid
  • discuss in pairs and groups the characteristics of research proposals
  • look at a sample research proposal to draw conclusions about core characteristics related to structure, content and language
