ADTIS In-Sessional - Using Sources in Academic Writing Wed 31 Jan 2018   17:00 Finished

A key aspect of academic writing is discussing the work of others. Quite often you will need to assess competing results or points of view in the literature and give your appraisal, including both positive and negative points. This workshop addresses how this can be done effectively, including how different verbs and phrases can be used to indicate your attitude towards other people’s work. It will be particularly useful for students of humanities and social sciences.
