Course ObjectiveThis module aims to develop two important academic skills: scientific
writing, and presenting. It is intended for research master’s students.
Students will learn how to write a scientific paper in English, and
present with confidence in English for an academic audience.
Course ContentThis course will be based on the principles of practice-based learning.
Instead of tedious lectures on theoretical underpinnings of writing and
presenting, students will actively learn how to write and present by
doing it, guided by an experienced teaching staff. The course consists
of two parts: a writing part , and a presenting part . In the writing
part of this course, student will learn how to write an empirical paper
based on survey data, and learn how to design, structure and streamline
the introduction, methods, results and discussion sections to bring
across their message in the best possible way. Prime examples of good
writing are discussed, and students will give feedback on each other’s
work at multiple occasions. In the second part of this course, students
will learn how to optimize their research presentation in front of an
international academic audience.
