Workshop: Research Into Academic Writing: Finding a Focus and Developing Questions
The National Writing Centers Consortium (NWCC) conference on Academic writing is one of the highlights of the year for writing instructors and research writers. This year the NWCC conference was hosted by Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.
Together with a US colleague, Tatiana Glushko, Svetlana Suchkova ran a workshop for teachers of Academic writing. The aim of the workshop was to encourage participants to publish internationally. The hand-on activities were focused on describing a problem and formulating a research question. Through writing, discussions and sharing ideas, participants came to better understanding of how to make research replicable, aggregable, and data-driven (Babcock & Thonus (2012); Haswell (2005)).
We’re glad that the participants found the workshop useful. That was a great example of collaborative work of the HSE Academic Writing Center and The Richard Wright Center for Writing, Rhetoric, and Research, Jackson State University, USA.
