Sisältö
  • voimassa koko opetussuunnitelmakauden:

    The course will help you learn how to unleash your writing and presentation potential so that you can function effectively in the academic context. It consists of two main themes that aim at supporting your dissertation process.

    First, we will develop your understanding of academic writing as a comprehensive process. Here, the focus will be on making writing an integral part of your daily work by creating a writing habit, learning to manage your writing time, and identifying and practicing the use of different tools that help in the writing process. As a result, you will learn how to produce text regularly as well as identify and overcome your challenges as a writer.

    Second, the course will help you develop yourself as a presenter. You will give several presentations during the course, and through practice learn how to deliver convincing, coherent and engaging research talks.

    In both writing and presenting, you will learn how to build a strong argument and give and receive constructive feedback.
