Learning outcomes

This course will give you practical tips and strategies for writing scientific articles in English. Designed as a two-day workshop, the main objective of this course is to learn to identify and produce the most important elements in English academic writing.

General description

The first day offers a series of exercises and points to reflect on, whereas the second day offers the students an opportunity to apply these tips and strategies in an "Editing Clinic". During the second day, the students will be taught a ten-step editing process that they will apply to their own texts in class.

For the second day of the workshop, students are asked to bring one copy of a well-written article in their fields and 5 copies of a 2-3 page sample of their own writing (unedited, unpublished). Please make sure that the writing sample is double spaced.
