In this course, participants – who may be working on scholarly papers, research proposals, theses or dissertation projects – will have the opportunity to strengthen their command of written English using published materials in their own disciplines. Participants will become familiar with various aspects essential for producing logical, reader-friendly, concise articles etc. Apart from examining the various stages in the writing process, we will focus on the structure of abstracts, how to enrich one‘s academic lexical repertoire and how to identify common errors which frequently arise in academic texts. In addition, participants will become familiar with how to write an effective review article etc., using examples from relevant disciplines. Participants are strongly advised to take along excerpts of personally written articles, papers etc. for discussion and analysis.
