Academic Writing with Fergus Lamb
Fergus Lamb. Bsc, Msc, MBPSS,
C.E.L.T.A. (Oxford House College),
D.E.L.T.A.(International House London)
I have worked as an English teacher for more than five years. I have worked
in London,the U.K., Italy, and for the last 2 years in Moscow. I have worked with
students studying English for Academic Purposes in Law, Politics, Finance and Biology.
The course will be presented in three modules, approximately 20 hours for each module:
By the end of the course, you will:
· Have written, received feedback on and revised a functioning scientific essay, research article and literature review.
This course starts from the basic unit of writing, the sentence, building up to the paragraph and finally to the structure of three key genres: essays, research articles, literature reviews.
While the course focuses on writing, you will work on speaking during the input sessions. The course will encourage you to work on your own to continue to develop your knowledge and ability.
You will understand and practice the processes involved in the different stages of academic writing: pre-writing, planning, drafting, evaluating, re-drafting, publishing.
As a result, you will be able to participate in academic discourse in English, enabling you to publish your research and take advantage of opportunities to learn and develop in different English speaking contexts, including using electronic media.
