Content Overview

The purpose of this course is to provide students with skills and tools to enhance their academic writing. Over the course of four sessions, students will engage in a variety of tasks, including writing assignments, reading assignments, group discussions and debate, and oral presentations.

During this course, students will learn how to:

  • Structure ideas in academic writing: academic writing as ‘storytelling’
  • Understand the various types of writing and how this affects style, vocabulary and content
  • Discuss research in appropriate language for various audiences (scholarly and general)
  • Critique academic writing and how to respond to academic criticism (providing suggestions, accepting suggestions, defending decisions)
  • Present qualitative and quantitative analyses in a way that is meaningful and accessible
  • Writing concisely, accurately, and accessibly to communicate complex ideas

Relevant high-quality sources on academic citations/referencing, writing style guides, guides to presenting statistics, etc. will be provided.
