Academic Writing Workshop

ELSIS - Academic Writing Workshop

The Academic Writing workshop is for students who are seeking to improve their writing skills. The focus of this workshop is on developing a well-structured essay, learning academic vocabulary and the linking devices necessary for connecting ideas at the sentence and paragraph level.

When you study at any university you will need to produce written assignments. You can expect assignments to be set and marked by your tutors/teachers or lecturers on a regular basis. One of the most common problems students face at university is that they tend to write in a very casual and informal manner. Whereas, assignment writing at university needs to be formal in tone, well structured and unambiguous. Therefore, improving your writing skills is essential if you wish to do further studies or if you want to improve your English in general.

Producing academic written work in English can be demanding and will require careful management of your time. There may be differences to how you have done this before in your home country and you will need to learn how to meet university standards in Australia. This workshop will help you understand the structure and language needed to compose an academically acceptable piece of writing.

* Duration: 2 x 1 hour sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. Sign-up is essential.

Students who attend this workshop will be able to:

  • Differentiate between academic and non-academic texts./li>
  • Understand what to do and what not to do in academic writing.
  • Write a well-structured academic essay.
  • Use linking devices correctly.
