Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The aim of the course is to gradually improve academic writing skills and equip students with tools which can be used in their future academic careers, including writing dissertations. During the course students learn how to write a well-structured academic essay based on sources, but the writing skills are not limited to essays only and can be easily transferred to other types of academic writing. The course provides a solid basis for further and more confident practice in academic writing necessary in the university context.

Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

The teaching approach focuses on the students and their active participation in class (action-oriented approach). Students often work in pairs and groups. The course is partly based on the flipped classroom method where students read materials before synchronous classes. This method allows for more efficient interaction during live classes.

Building general academic vocabulary and discipline-specific vocabulary is a significant element of the course and each student will complete an individual project which will help them expand the range of useful language for reading and writing in the academic context.

Formative assessment plays a significant role in the development of writing skills therefore, each student will receive feedback on their written work and will be asked to act upon it.

There are four components of the final grade:

1. Essay 1 (due on 29.03.21) – 20%

2. Essay 2 (due on 17.05.21) – 30%

3. Individual Academic Vocabulary Project – 25%

4. Active participation in class – 25%
