Writing in the STEM Disciplines

Tuesday, 13 April 2021 - 10:00am

Tue, April 13, 2021 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM See description. This workshop introduces researchers to the typical organizational structure of a research article in the STEM disciplines, while accounting for variation in disciplinary differences. That is, some conventions and features of English academic writing remain constant across STEM disciplines, while others vary to account for discipline-specific norms and expectations of community members. The workshop facilitators draw on evidence-based research to identify some of the similarities and differences in style at both the macro- and micro-levels of the text.

The workshop includes dedicated time for participants to revise a section of a research article and receive feedback from facilitators and peers. Therefore, this workshop is most useful for those with a research article underway.

Workshop Facilitator: Dr. Patty Kelly, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication
