This course covers the structural components and conventions of writing in an academic context, with emphasis on the process of writing and extensive revising. The course will guide participants through the process of writing an essay. Peer review activities will aid participants in honing their skills in terms of language use, vocabulary development, register, narrowing a topic, and argumentation. The course will also address conventions of academic writing, for example politically productive and gender sensitive language. Articles from scholarly journals will provide ample material for students to engage with in further developing their writing skills. Students will compose one essay, which will then undergo several phases of revision.
