Begin every writing task, whether thesis or email, by asking yourself "To whom am I writing?" and "What response do I want?"

Christina Penner, Instructor and Faculty Lead for Student Professional Development at the Department of Computer Science, talked about writing as a means to communicate our scientific research as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research (SURE) program on June 27, 2022.

Students, almost all of whom were attending the workshop for the first time, got to experience this 2 hour-interactive session and shared what they learned at the end. Among which were the importance of knowing one's audience when writing, awareness of bias in scientific writing, structuring one's writing process, and getting a sense of community that they were not alone in dealing with writing tasks.

One of the most valuable experiences throughout your studies and professional journey could be the lessons you learn from your mentors.
