(PGT) Is My Writing Academic Enough?

  • Tuesday 28th May 2019 @ 10:00 – 13:00 istock_000006051647xsmall

Does academic writing have to be dull or obscure, or can it be engaging and direct? This workshop explores the standards and expectations associated with academic writing. We will look at relevant linguistic and stylistic choices (active or passive? first or third person? plain English or jargon?) and consider academic conventions in terms of organisation and writing style. This is very much a ‘hands-on’ workshop with plenty of room for discussion.

Pre-Course Work:
Please bring a short piece of (your own) academic writing to this workshop.

(PGT) Critical Reading, Assignment Planning and Writing

  • Thursday 14th March 2019 @ 13:10-16:00Top view of young students in library

Being a masters student is challenging, not just because of the level you will be learning

at but also the amount of work (e.g. reading and writing) you’ll be expected to do, and all the while being ‘critical’. With so much to do, using effective strategies will help you to manage the different demands of your masters.

This workshop will focus on practical strategies for masters-level effective reading and writing, and developing your critical thinking during these. Participants will be able to practice some strategies in short exercises during the workshop.

This is an interactive workshop and discussions and questions by participants are warmly encouraged.
