Essentials of Academic Writing: Structure and Flow

Date(s) - 21/10/2021
15:15 - 16:45



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 at the sentence level, and you will also have opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to your own academic texts. By the end of this workshop, you will have learned a number of strategies that will help you to successfully complete academic writing tasks.

Bachelor’s and master’s students

Students will

  • review paragraph structure, focusing on the elements contained in topic sentences;
  • learn techniques to more effectively organize information and improve flow; and
  • practice these skills at both the sentence and text levels.
