Academic Writing, four full days
Format: This course comprises four consecutive days.
The number of participants is up to 20, and there will be two instructors, where relevant. All participants hand in sample texts from their own writing for oral and written feedback.
The course also offers a unique opportunity to strengthen your network with fellow PhD students.
Claus Adam Jarløv is responsible for this course. Feel free to contact him for further information.
The four full days enable you to do a lot of on-site scientific writing in small groups under the guidance of your instructors. We alternate between intensive group writing and plenary instruction, demonstration and discussion. We use peer feedback as a tool during the entire course.
