English Academic Writing I: The Ground Rules of Writing Well (July 13-17, 2020 | online)

Written by

This online workshop addresses junior and senior scholars from the social sciences and humanities who have good command of the English language, seek to improve their English writing skills, and strive to make their academic papers more idiomatic. The workshop seeks to create an awareness of the typical patterns of non-idiomatic writing to which non-native authors writing in English – and especially German-speaking academics – are prone and equip the participants with strategies to avoid these pitfalls.

The workshop comprises four half-day sessions (3.5–4 hours each) and will be conducted in English by two trainers who have a professional background in the social sciences and many years of experience in teaching English academic writing and in translating and editing academic texts by German-speaking scholars.

Intended Learning Outcomes

  • You will be aware of some of the important characteristics of the English language that will help improve your writing.
  • You will be conscious of some of the pitfalls that especially German speakers are vulnerable to when writing in English and be familiar with strategies to avoid them.
  • You will be able to use this knowledge to develop a more fluent and lively style of writing.
  • You will be familiar with a wide range of resources, aids, and strategies to help you improve your writing.
