This course will introduce the basic concepts and issues related to learning and acquiring research methods and academic writing skills. We will carefully examine the most common questions and models applied to writing for academic purposes from a variety of perspectives to gain a better understanding of such processes.
In addition, we will focus on the essential elements of the writing process, such as academic vocabulary, grammar and punctuation, cohesion, and style. Special attention will be paid to different types of writing, and features and components of academic writing. We will look at how to organize academic writing, summarize and paraphrase, and use references, examples, and quotations.
The course takes place on campus Werderstr. with two extra writing sessions online in zoom.
