Academic writing is a constant part of the academic's life. Sometimes it can be helpful to single out and focus on just one aspect of writing for an hour or two. The English Unit can organise workshops or short courses on specific areas of academic writing on request.
The minimum number of participants for a workshop to go ahead is eight. If you are interested contact the Language Centre Assistant, providing your name, department, and cohort. If you already have a group of interested people, include your colleagues' information as well.
The choice of materials is tailored as much as possible to the participants. If the group consists of just one discipline then the workshop will focus on discipline-specific materials. If the group is interdisciplinary, then the materials will be correspondingly interdisciplinary.
Below is a list of workshops that have been offered in the past. These are not exhaustive, and we can add any others you think could be included. You can contact Nicola Hargreaves with specific suggestions for other related areas.
