Course description:
Being an academic means being a professional writer: for it is through writing that you make an impact and pursue your career. Alas, the writing part of academic work doesn’t seem inviting or even fun to most people. Yet it can be made a lot easier! Furthermore, writing is a useful tool in managing your thesis as well as other complex projects. Learn about helpful techniques and work on your own texts in this two-day workshop.

The workshop is split into two parts. It comes with an accompanying wiki to supply you with further information and impulses as well as a place to discuss topics. Please note that you will be asked to take part in all of that, and accomplish 3-4 small tasks before and in between workshop days.
