Writing for science
BIOENG-604 / 1 credit
Teacher: Manley Suliana
Remark: Meeting times will be determined according to the professor and participants availabilities.
Every 2 years
The goal of the course is to develop effective writing skills for academic and professional contexts.
This course is designed for PhD students whose English skills are advanced but whose writing needs further development. This course is grounded in current applied linguistics, and it provides the opportunity to analyze, practice and receive feedback on some of the kinds of professional and academic documents that you will write in your science studies and careers. You will find the course most useful if you are already engaged in a research project; you can then use the literature and data related to own research in the assignments.
Class members are frequently the authors of the work under review and are occasionally responsible for leading group discussions and making short presentations. Regular attendance, timely completion of assignments, and constructive participation throughout are crucial to the learning process and to the success of the course
Evaluation will be comprised of exercises, class participation, and a final project. Attendance to all sessions is mandatory.
