Introducing Academic Communication: A Writing Project
Volledige vakbeschrijvingCommunication plays an important part in everyday life; however, within academia communication is essential. Having good communication skills involves being able to express your ideas and findings in a clear and concise manner, within the strict guidelines laid out by the ‘scientific community’. In this project students will practice writing an academic piece that adheres to these guidelines and that can be considered ‘academically sound’. Students will be expected to put the learned skills of Intro to Academic Skills I & II into practice and write an extensive research paper. The project is mainly based on peer-to-peer education; by writing a paper within a small group students will be able to both share their skills and knowledge and learn from each other.
