Cost: Free of charge

This course is designed for all Bachelor and Master students at the TH Wildau, both German and international, who wish to write papers or their dissertation in English and would like to develop their writing skills. The focus will be on the conventional moves and strategies of academic writing such as:

INTRODUCTION

LITERATURE REVIEW

METHODOLOGY

RESULTS

DISCUSSION

CONCLUSION

Being critical

Transition statements

Hedging

Coherence

This corpus-based course will offer practice in processes and strategies that enable students to present their work in a clear and coherent fashion. A variety of free online tools will be demonstrated which enable students to make their writing more formal and academic. Particular attention will be paid to collocations (how words are combined to form phrases) and the challenges that German students face when they seek to develop their own academic style. Students are welcome to bring along their own academic work so that individual feedback can be provided on the final day.

This course is free for all students, but please register with John O’Donoghue by 15.08.2019 ; john.odonoghue(at)th-wildau.de
