One of the ways you’ll be participating in this online class is by listening to recorded presentations. The instructor has prepared some of the class lectures as PowerPoints with recorded audio. You’ll be able to listen and work at your own pace, ask questions live in OnWebinar, then submit the assignment related to the presentation on the university’s Blackboard site where you’ll receive individual feedback, both from peers and from the instructor.
Here’s an excerpt from one of the recorded presentations. The full class presentation is on developing an awareness of the structures used to give context to analysis, but this excerpt makes an significant point about the importance of structure in second-language writing, in general, and reveals a good deal about the pedagogical philosophy behind Research Writing for International Students.
The full presentation will be linked to a short practice using your own writing from your own field of study, so you’ll be able to quickly master the skills discussed. If you have questions about Research Writing for International Students, contact the instructor at email@example.com.
