Academic Writing Skills aims to provide students with an intensive writing workshop in which the key skills required to write successfully at university are presented and practised. The subject content covers the broad academic categories of style and structure, with a focus on complexity and formality, referencing, punctuation, grammar, as well as writing an essay introduction, body, and conclusion.
This subject will be delivered to students via a two-day (week-end) face-to-face workshop. During the workshop, students will deconstruct exemplar texts in order to identify and analyse the features of quality academic writing. They will complete a number of written activities, individually and in groups, including composing simple and complex sentences as well as extended texts displaying coherent, logical arguments. There will also be an online component providing students with the opportunity to participate in CSU's online learning environment.
The Subject Coordinator will be available via the online forum before and after the workshop to guide and support students
