GC PLUS Training Days13.–14.02.2020: Academic Writing – strategy and practice

The content of this two-day workshop focuses on the needs of less experienced writers. On the one hand, a framework of strategic notions is introduced and discussed, i.e. matters of self-organization and how to structure the writing process, development of the right mindset and when or how to implement revisional processes. On the other hand, the workshop comprises several practical items for the text configuration process itself, e.g. how to write with structure and appeal for a defined target group, how to achieve cohesion and flow in the logical argumentation and how to develop an appropriate language style.

Contents

  • Strategic notions (self-organisation, structuring, revision etc.)
  • Practical items for the writing process (logical cohesion, sensible paragraphing, transitions, etc.)
  • Appeal and target group orientation
  • Exemplary work on own texts

Der Workshop findet auf Deutsch statt, die Anwendungsbeispiele und Übungen können aber auch auf Englisch durchgeführt werden.

  • mehr Sicherheit in anspruchsvollen Situationen entwickeln
  • positiver Umgang mit der eigenen Nervosität
