Workshop “Hidden’ Elements of Academic Discourse: Signposting”
Have you ever struggled when reading other scholars’ papers? Have reviewers criticized your articles for lack of clarity? One of the reasons for that might be unclear progression of ideas. This workshop aims to help you introduce a good structure into your writing. We will deal with signposts and learn that there are many more connectors than just “and,” ”but,” and “however.” You will also learn that signposting is not only about using appropriate connectors but about clear referencing, too. You will practice choosing between connectors that look synonymous, discuss the differences, and do exercises, which will help you to ensure coherence in your text. This workshop will equip you with the means to make your text flow. Join us!
