Workshop "Learn from Others"
An essential part of scholarly writing is understanding and applying accurate organizational structures, content components, and language preferences across a variety of writing genres in one’s discipline.
In this workshop, participants will focus on analyzing several research articles provided by the facilitator. The articles will be from scholarly journals in different disciplines, and discussions will center on identifying structural, content, and language components. Analyses will be guided by a list of questions and prompts provided by the facilitator in worksheet format. By closely examining research articles of diverse disciplines, participants will develop their skills of observation and apply these skills to learning more about advanced scholarly writing conventions expected of them. An additional benefit will be the ability to apply similar strategies with other types of writing in their disciplines.
