Collaboration in action
Only active collaboration makes research powerful.
That’s a pity that an eight-week writing journey has come to end. Thirty HSE colleagues participated in the journey - the AWC course - “Writing Academic Articles: Strengthening Your Chances for Publication” guided by two world leading experts in academic writing, Talinn Phillips and Ron Martinez. It was the English Language Office (ELO), the U.S. Embassy, who supported the Center’s grant application and made the journey possible.
We all enjoyed those eight weeks of insightful input, writing and rewriting, peer discussion and expertise sharing. The major outcomes of the course have been written and reviewed article introductions, plenty of ideas for improvement, and plans to organize writing groups and retreats.
“I'm so grateful - it was a fantastic course. My knowledge and skills of academic writing have greatly improved during the course.”
“Many thanks to Ron and Talinn! As a practicing Academic Writing teacher myself, I found the materials extremely helpful. I have made quite a lot of pedagogical notes to come back to in the future. The individual tutoring sessions were great, too.”
“It was absolutely great to look at research writing from an American perspective. Thank you for a comfortable atmosphere, creative tasks, and feedback. Great eight weeks!”
We’d like to thank both the instructors and participants, both the ELO (and personally Jennifer Uhler) and the AWC team. Only active collaboration makes research powerful.
