Would you like to learn more about how to help students improve their academic writing skills?

What strategies are there to help students develop, and for us teachers to become better mentors? This course will cover a number of pedagogical tools and relevant theoretical background for teachers and supervisors wanting to help students understand the academic writing process. It aims to give an enhanced awareness of the writing process itself, introduce and discuss methods that can be used during communication training, and improve the participants’ ability to give concrete and effective feedback on students’ texts. The course is aimed at anyone involved in teaching courses involving written assignments or supervising thesis/PhD projects, and anyone else who would like to know more about the academic writing process.
