Leerdoelen The principal goal is to refine the writing skills required to function successfully within the academic community. You will, therefore, be encouraged to develop a rhetorical awareness in which you view your writing as contributing to ongoing academic debate rather than fulfilling set assignments.
Omschrijving The course comprises six two-hour teaching workshops and one individual consultation. It emphasizes the power of language to express ideas and critical thinking. It also stresses the need for a process-based strategy that is built up over time in stages rather than just a flash of inspiration. At the start of the course, you will be given a short test with feedback based on the Council of Europe Framework of Reference. You will then work both in session and at home on producing one longer piece of writing which will be used for end-of-course assessment. During the module you will develop an ongoing portfolio in which you:
─ examine the contexts which create academic papers – the expectations and needs of researchers (potential readers);
─ analyze the typical features and conventions within your discipline field;
─ build final results in stages;
─ review work-in-progress in collaborative peer groups for purposes other than editing;
─ test and evaluate web tools that assist the writing process of drafting, revising, fine-tuning and editing.
