What follows is a brief summary of the workshop, its goals, the workshop team, and a set of resources.
For the first week of the workshop, the I-TECH/UW team worked with UNAM faculty to build upon their existing skills as thesis advisers. The team offered insight on how to guide incoming MPH students as they choose thesis topics and begin their research. Faculty from both institutions also collaborated to develop teaching tools and course syllabi for the program.
UNAM faculty and the I-TECH/UW team also discussed a wider vision for the program. In particular, they discussed ways to develop programs that will extend beyond teaching and build the strength of Namibia’s public health community. Ideas included starting a journal club, organizing a Namibia public health association, and holding “works in progress” sessions, at which faculty could share current research projects with colleagues. Students also enjoyed their portion of the workshop and came away with energy for future projects; several expressed an interest in forming a student association and an alumni association in the future.

Thesis writing workshops, hosted by the CSUSM Writing Center, are an opportunity for you to accomplish work on your thesis in a supportive, distraction-free environment.The American Sociological Association invited me to present a workshop at the 2012 annual conference on the dissertation to book process. Knowing that my personal experience writing a book differed from many of my colleagues, I started the workshop planning process early and by investigating others’ experiences. After identifying common themes, differences, and resources I wrote an abstract and identified colleagues who would add a perspective different from my own.
