AAS: X9896: Academic Writing

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This module combines theoretical perspectives on academic writing with practical activities that should increase the participants' own writing output. There is a strong emphasis on contextualising writing in participants' academic disciplines, while recognising current trends towards interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary requirements for writing. Participants will be encouraged to choose a focus for this module: either their own academic writing or their use of writing activities in teaching at undergraduate or postgraduate level. The module focuses strongly on providing participants with practical skills in academic writing underpinned by dominant theories, frameworks, etc., and on providing guidance in teaching academic writing within the disciplines. However, emphasis is on targeting and enhancing personal writing capacity.
