Academic Writing Skills

Thursday, 01 June 2017

This session will introduce a practical strategy that can help academic writers start and develop a writing project.  

Writing to prompts - in several forms - is a strategy described in two books, Writing for Academic Journals and How to Write a Thesis.  
At this workshop participants will be asked to try this strategy, discuss it and reflect on its potential uses in their own writings.
 
Rowena Murray worked in the Centre for Academic Practice at Strathclyde University for 15 years and is now Professor in Education, Director of Research University of the West of Scotland, Ayr. She supervises PhDs and runs workshops, courses and consultancies on academic writing. 
Her research has been funded by the British Academy and Nuffield Foundation. She publishes books and articles on academic writing, including How to Write a Thesis and Writing for Academic Journals. She is editor of a series on higher education, beginning with The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (2009) and co-authored a book on research supervision (2009).
