- Workshops are ‘hands-on’ where students work with, and edit text from a variety of sources relevant to their specialist field.
- Students’ work-in-progress and papers they are reading are used wherever possible to develop their awareness of good writing and critical ability.
- Students are encouraged to work in groups and share ideas- from student feedback on these workshops, it has been noted that peer feedback was found to play a key role in their success.
Frequency: One each term
- To develop students’ awareness of the reader’s aims
- To write in a clearer and more concise way in order to communicate ideas successfully
- To Inform you about what it means to be a successful writer and the importance of context (e.g. who is your reader, what are your assumptions about their knowledge of the topic?)
Topics covered: This Workshop focuses on the fundamental differences between these two sections of a paper and looks at how the language we use can help to distinguish their functions within the paper. If you are working on either/both of these sections of your thesis this will be a very useful opportunity to review and revise your texts. If you are not yet writing up, then this is a good opportunity to become aware of the language used by different researchers to discuss and conclude their papers.
