Effective academic writing
Effective academic writing is essential at all stages of your academic career. Your ideas, findings, and contributions need to be clear to your reader. This goes beyond the use of correct grammar and syntax, and is underpinned by the way in which you think about your work.
This session will introduce you to critical thinking and critical writing, and help you develop your skills in each of these. We will also look at the conventions of academic writing and discuss how these can be applied, particularly with respect to writing formally and succinctly.
This is a practical workshop designed to allow you to practice some of the concepts covered, receive feedback on your responses, and ask further questions so you can approach your own writing with more confidence.
Aimed atDoctoral researchers, postdoctoral researchers
