Common Academic Expressions in English: Making Connections

May 31, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

One of the major challenges that academic writers encounter is making connections within the text, for example, making comparisons and drawing conclusions. Rather than counting on readers to figure out the meaning of a difficult text, academic writing requires writers to make clear connections between ideas. In this workshop, we introduce a variety of academic expressions that are commonly used by academic writers to outline the overall structure of the text, or specify the relationships between sentences. At the end of the workshop, participants will walk away with an awareness of the writer-responsible nature of academic writing, and develop better facility with using academic expressions to improve clarity in their own writing practice.

Facilitator: Dr. Xuan Zhang, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication
Date & Time: Tuesday, May 31, 2022: 10:30am – 12:00pm PT

Location: Zoom Registrants receive the Zoom link the day before the workshop.
