Writing an academic text can be a daunting and complex task requiring knowledge of a range of accepted writing conventions as well as the ability to construct sentences that are idiomatically and grammatically correct. This course aims to highlight a range of important components in the writing process through analysis and practice using authentic academic texts. Topics covered include: academic style (formality, impersonal and objective language, passive voice, caution, nominalisation); structure at sentence, paragraph and document level; reporting verbs and their forms; coherence and cohesion.
Requirement of students: Please supply at least one week before the workshop begins an abstract or proposal for your research project, or a similar extract of academic text that you have written.
You have to register for the 9th International Research Workshop to participate in this course.
