Research writing - Tromsø - Oslo - Bergen

02.05.2011 - 03.05.2011

ResClim is now offering a course in research writing in three parts. The first will be held in Tromsø May 2 and 3. The second part in Oslo in September and the final in Bergen in November, two days at each place.

The teacher is Daniel Soule, who did the work-shop at Runde, 2010.

We will combine some of the writing skills which we did at Runde with more interactive goal setting and peer-support techniques which aim to encourage and support research writers through the process of producing papers or other texts.

Research writing workshop programme

The programme is designed to support participants to write a comprehensive piece of research writing over a seven month period. Through a combination of structured workshops, peer-to-peer support, personal and group goal setting participants will follow an evidence based approach to develop them as academic writers and achieve their goals. For example, a student early in their doctoral studies may aim to produce a comprehensive literature review; therefore this programme, with the help of an experienced lecturer specialising in research writing, will provide strategic support in enabling a student to build a literature review week-by-week, avoiding the pitfalls and by the end have a full draft completed. If, however, a student has collected data and begun to analyse it then this workshop programme would enable them to design goals specifically to enable them to write up that data into a research paper. Each session will also feature informative and interactive tasks which will provide students with background knowledge about different research documents and of academic English. All the workshops will focus heavily on practical exercises and participants will spend time designing and working on their writing projects. In between the workshops participants will be expected to be writing and working to the goals they set for themselves in the previous workshop.
