ODA is an intensive writing retreat. It's designed for doctoral students who need / want to set aside a serious block of time to make a significant push toward the next step of their dissertation. The retreat is targeted toward students who:
Have research question(s) but have not been able to complete chapters 1, 2 and 3 (the proposal); OR
Have defended their proposal and collected data, but have not completed chapters 4 and 5.
Retreat participants will be selected and assigned to work directly with a DSC writing instructor. The ratio of advisor to students will be 1-to-4, meaning students will have a great deal of support and interaction on their project. In addition, participants will exchange papers and support each other through peer-to-peer feedback.
