What are the language features that characterize good writing?

Facilitator: Renia Lopez, ENGL
Facilitator: Grace Lim, ELC
Date:10 Dec 2018
Time:12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

This workshop will give a brief introduction of the core elements of good writing, which are register, including nominalization; coherence and cohesion; paraphrasing; citation and evaluation. These are the areas that your students tend to struggle most with. We will be working with samples from student essays from a range of disciplines. 

The purpose of this workshop is to raise teachers' awareness of issues in student writing  and suggest a 'quick fix' for them.

This activity is jointly organised by the CoP on Using English for Academic Success and EDC.
