Many professions both inside and outside of academia demand a high level of writing skill. Our Professional Writing Modules are designed to develop your skills in common formats of professional writing.
Each module consists of two 90-minute sessions. Before attending the first session, participants read a selection of texts on the topic.
Session 1: participants focus on understanding and critiquing the writing principles and advice presented in the readings. For homework, they are asked to compose a short text applying the writing principles discussed.
Session 2: participants offer constructive critiques of the writing samples in order to gain further insight into the writing principles and techniques.
We offer the following three modules: Writing Grant Proposals, Writing Reports, and Writing Academic Papers.
