Inhoud van de cursus (alleen in het Engels beschikbaar)

This course will provide an introduction to academic writing and presenting in English. We will utilize texts related to other courses in your program to analyze the structure, register, and style of the texts and then apply that knowledge to your own academic writing. You will also learn how to effectively present your academic material to an audience.

The first two weeks of the course will be plenary lectures. Starting in Week 3, we will switch to seminars with smaller groups that will focus on studying common errors and providing individual feedback for writing assignments related to your other courses.

Bijzonderheden (alleen in het Engels beschikbaar)

80% attendance is required during the seminars. Seminar groups will be determined via Blackboard after the second plenary lecture. Please enroll on Blackboard and follow the posted instructions.

There will be four assessments: a mid-term writing exam (25%), and oral presentation (20%),  and two writing assignments (25% and 30%) that are related to your other courses. Grades for each assessment must be at least 5.5 in order to pass the course.
