The purpose of this course (ECON 985) or workshop is (at least) three-fold:

           1.) By actively engaging in the workshop both as a presenter and a prepared and vocal participant, a student improves his or her ability to organize thoughts and to discuss ones' own and other research.

           2.) Participation in the workshop allows the student to associate, correct, or avoid similar problems in one's own research, and to learn appropriate presentation and research skills by observing and engaging others.

           3.) Participation in the workshop provides the student with feedback on his or her own research in a relaxed, but formal, setting from student colleagues and multiple faculty members who may or may not be dissertation committee members.

           All student participants are required to present at least once during the Fall or Spring semester. Student participants will also provide written comments on papers provided by EACH presenter. Please read the paper before the presentation and bring written comments to the presentation. Turn the comments in to Dr. Gilleskie, who will read and distribute them to the presenter. Think of yourself as a referee on the paper. As such, you should provide very detailed comments on the assigned paper in the format of a formal referee report; these comments should be substantive with regard to the economic content, modeling, and empirical work as well as constructive with regard to conveyance of the contribution of the paper, how it fits into the literature, grammar and style.

           In addition to the required presentation of own research at least once during the semester and weekly active participation, we encourage preliminary oral exams (defense of the prospectus) and final oral exams (defense of the dissertation) for applied micro students to be scheduled as part of the workshop. Exams have priority for scheduling and so there may be changes to the order, day, or time in which students present.  Since the times of the exams must accommodate the schedules of faculty on the committees, some of the workshops might be scheduled outside the usual workshop time and some regular attendees might be unable to attend. Also, there may be scheduling conflicts that necessitate using a conference room in which case only the committee members and student being examined would be able to attend.
