Advanced Technical Writing University of Tsukuba
In this course students will apply skills and knowledge developed in Introductory Technical Writing to construct a short research paper based an aspect of their own research. In the first class students will develop a plan for their research paper. In following classes students will learn how to construct the sections that typically make up a research article (Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion). There will be a strong focus on analysing texts in order to understand the type of information contained in each of the sections, how it is organised, and the typical language features (e.g. vocabulary, grammar structures and phrases). In addition to simple generic texts, students will select and analyse a number of research articles from their own discipline. Students will also learn how to use text analysis tools to help them employ appropriate phraseology in their writing. Students will submit and receive detailed feedback drafts of each section of their paper before submitting a final version for assessment.
