This course is designed to refresh or polish academic writing skills in English. It is the opportunity for those actively involved in writing academic papers to take a step back and look at what is involved in the process.
This will involve:
The course will involve an analysis of model texts that illustrate good or not so good academic writing. The idea is that if you are able to identify why a piece of writing is good you will then be able to apply these techniques to your own writing. Participants will be given the opportunity to bring in or produce samples of their own writing in order to get feedback. The course will be interactive and practical.
A follow-up workshop (Part II) will be offered in the summer semester.
Participation is subject to the successfully passed public presentation of your dissertation project.
