Practical: Writing Assignment 1
Full course description
Students will practice academic writing. Based on three writing assignments, attention will be paid to giving feedback, structuring an academic paper, plagiarism and writing according to current language and style rules.
The first assignment involves writing a blog about the observational study students performed in period 3 (part of Skills II). Students are challenged to describe their observational study in a scientific and popular way that appeals to a larger audience. They also have to give feedback on each other’s blogs during the practical. Students are given the opportunity to edit their own blog on the basis of the feedback they will receive from their peers and teaching staff.
Students will perform this task under direct supervision of teaching staff.
