Academic English Writing Workshop

The aim of this workshop is to help you improve your academic writing skills in English.

Target group

The workshop is open to all faculty members at Aarhus University who wish to improve their academic writing skills in English.

Description

We will focus on the qualities of good academic writing, including clarity, style, cohesion, structure and argumentation. We will also examine relevant grammatical and usage issues.

The workshop will include instructor presentations, guided discussions, practical exercises, and instructor and peer-to-peer feedback.

This course provides a valuable opportunity for you to improve your own research articles. Prior to the start of the workshop, you will be invited to submit a 4–5 page writing sample of an article you are currently working on (or have recently completed). During the course, you will receive feedback on this writing sample on a topic-by-topic basis. In the final session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your English academic writing individually with the course instructor.

Duration

5 sessions of 3 hours

Instructor

The course will be taught by Sarah Jennings. Sarah has a PhD from Warwick University (England) and, since 2011, has been helping AU staff and students with their English communication. She has knowledge of the academic publishing world and works as an academic copyeditor for Language Services in the Faculty of Arts.
