Event description

"I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead” (Mark Twain)

Writing abstracts for conferences is an important but also a complex art. They are the key means by which you can communicate your work, whether completed or in progress and they inform the conference chairs and reviewers of the likely quality of your work in comparison to other abstracts submitted.

This workshop is designed for members of the MKE community as well as other colleagues that would like to join this community and/or that are interested in learning more about writing an abstract for conferences. Specifically, the workshop will introduce you to the process of abstract writing for research-focused conferences such as for the ‘Knowledge and Learning’ track at BAM’s Annual Conference.

The workshop will equip you with Top Tips for writing an abstract, and will cover such key questions as:

  • What exactly is an abstract?
  • What do I include and what do I exclude?
  • How can I embed scholarship and research into the abstract?
  • How do I effectively structure an abstract?
  • You will also have the opportunity to start developing your own abstract with experienced support and to share it with peers from diverse fields, to learn from each other.
