Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

In Doctoral Seminar B the goal is to continue to build a scholarly writing portfolio, including preparation for comprehensive examinations, writing conference proposals, participating in local, national and international graduate student collaborations, and preparing conference presentations. Portfolios will be presented during the term. This course is graded on an in progress/complete basis.

COURSE DETAILS:

Les activités du cours porteront sur la rédaction d’une demande de bourses (CRSH ou autre), la préparation à l’examen de synthèse, la préparation des demandes éthiques en lien avec les projets de recherche développés par les étudiants et la rédaction d'une proposition de communication à soumettre pour une conférence académique de leur choix.

Le séminaire de doctorat offre donc aux étudiant-e-s inscrit-e-s dans le programme PhD en Langues, cultures et littératies un lieu de création d’une communauté académique. Il leur permet de discuter des sujets qui les intéressent avec objectif de les initier aux cultures facultaires et universitaires, les soutenir dans leur cheminement académique et développer leurs pratiques scientifiques.

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN FALL 2020

Teaching at SFU in fall 2020 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
