Academic Writing in English (for intermediate to advanced speakers of English)

Aims and Objectives

This course aims to support creative, academic and professional writing. Students will be encouraged to write in a variety of contexts and to the end of research and communication in academic contexts. Lessons will include the fundamentals, including note-taking, outlining, summarizing, mind mapping and paper writing. We will examine how disciplines have organized their issues, questions, methods, and literatures and how they expect you to address them. The objective is to support and develop your writing competences. 


Topics

Developing research questions, library and web search, finding and reviewing sources, collecting and analyzing data, draft and revision, exploring different writing strategies, dealing with writers block, giving and receiving feedback.


Rewards

Academic writing is greatly rewarding and fun, not least because it often leads to revelation, competence, power, security in knowing you are following the right path, and an honest sense of achievement.
