While it’s important to develop your academic writing and critical thinking skills, it’s just as important to brush up on the basics – especially if you are multilingual or if you haven’t been in formal study for a while. These resources walk you through the pragmatics of the English language and will give you a solid foundation on which you can build clear, precise writing.
Fundamentals of Writing
In this workshop we will explore the ways that you can begin writing clear and effective sentences using a range of punctuation marks and sentence structures. By the end of this workshop you will have learnt about the rules for writing sentences, but most importantly you will know how to interpret those rules in order to improve the clarity of your writing and the message you want to communicate.
In this workshop we will discuss how you can begin to express your ideas effectively by constructing coherent and cohesive paragraphs. We will explore the variety of ways you can compose a paragraph and provide you with time and space to practise constructing and linking paragraphs that convey your arguments clearly.
