Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
This course is designed to work within the ELP format, i.e. it is an intensive, weekend-based course. Furthermore, it is designed to help students work on a specific portion of their dissertation proposal, in this case chapter 3. This functions within context of our cohort-based program, in which all of the students in a cohort are at roughly the same place in their degree program. For these reasons, this course is distinct from any similar courses being offered at GW.
This course was initially developed as a pilot course under HOL 8100 Special Topics. It has now been run successfully several times and has become an integral part of the ELP course sequence, such that it needs a distinct course number.
