Writing in STEM: Common Academic Expressions in English

November 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Writing in the STEM disciplines can be an especially challenging task for multilingual writers who speak English as an additional language, as it requires a high level of language proficiency to effectively use the English language with the appropriate level of accuracy, precision, and conciseness. Research shows that common academic expressions can greatly improve writing quality and fluency, therefore, it can be beneficial for multilingual writers in STEM to develop a large repertoire of these expressions. In this workshop, we introduce academic expressions that are commonly used in STEM research articles with authentic examples. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of common academic expressions in STEM, and be able to use them as a resource to improve their scientific writing competency.
