CONTENT
This workshop is designed to help students improve their academic writing in English. Participants will gain tools they can use to write texts that flow smoothly and sound idiomatic. To do this, we will focus on effective paragraphing, word order, and using transitions—as well as a few tricks. Focused tasks will allow participants to concentrate on these elements in isolation, and a larger writing task will help them to integrate the elements into their own writing. Finally, we will look at punctuation and presentation issues that will help guide your reader smoothly through your text. By the end, participants will be better equipped to approach and successfully complete academic writing tasks.

TARGET GROUP
Bachelor’s and master’s students

COMPETENCY GOALS
Students will

  • learn techniques to more effectively organize information and improve flow;
  • understand punctuation rules and how punctuation helps guide the reader; and
  • practice these skills at both the sentence and text levels.
