Upcoming Workshop: Citation Management Software


Tuesday, October 23 | 4:00 – 5:00pm | Forsyth Hall, Room 242 | RSVP
What is citation management software and how can it enhance your research and writing?Over the past several years, new technology has emerged to help manage, organize and prepare all of your research materials: articles, books, etc.Citation management software is your personal collection of reference materials (think iTunes for research materials). The tool allows you to add notes, produce annotated bibliographies, seamlessly insert references into your papers, and instantly produce properly formatted bibliographies at the end. As with the adoption of any new tool, it takes some time and effort on the front end to learn it and adopt it, but then you’ll reap benefits for years to come.
Presenter: Lisa Granquist, LPP PhD student

Experiential learning, seven cities at a time


By | news@Northeastern

In March, Fran­cisco Torres, MURP ’12, con­ducted research at the Carmel Aca­d­emic Center in Haifa, Israel, to find out whether the uni­ver­sity is suc­ceeding in helping the city attract — and retain — top young talent.

He gath­ered data by inter­viewing the campus project man­ager, a city sta­tis­ti­cian and the director of a young adult center that helps stu­dents find jobs.

The experiential-​​learning oppor­tu­nity was part of a two-​​semester graduate-​​level cap­stone course in urban and regional policy. Each stu­dent in the class was tasked with deter­mining whether spe­cific ini­tia­tives in par­tic­ular cities throughout the world were suc­ceeding in pro­moting talent reten­tion and job cre­ation by reviewing poli­cies, ana­lyzing lit­er­a­ture and con­ducting inter­views with stake­holders in each location.

At the end of the semester, each stu­dent wrote — and pre­sented — a case study on his or her respec­tive city.
