In addition, the class will utilize peer editing to help students improve their writing through the process of giving and receiving feedback based on the topics covered by the instructor. The objective of the workshop is to prepare a paper for publication either as a student note or a post-graduation article. As such, students are required to have a solid draft paper prior to enrollment. It can be a seminar paper or a draft student note.
