This two-day online literacy course addresses doctoral researchers who are interested in writing an Introduction section while rationalizing their drafting and revising skills and deepening their understanding of journal requirements with regard to text genre.
Participants will be invited to adopt the Writing Process Approach in drafting and revising a 600-word Introduction to be submitted ahead of the course. This writing sample will be returned to them with editing notes and an invitation for individual trainer feedback scheduled during the course.
Course participants will equally be asked to select and submit a published research article authored by a leading scientist in their field ahead of the course. These model research articles will serve the purpose of analysing the line of argument adopted and developing relevant content in one’s own Introduction. Moreover, participants will refer to these model research articles to study the organization of content and the structural elements of style that make up text genre in their discipline.
Participants will additionally take part in a writing experiment that will enable them to practice the distinct phases of the Writing Process Approach as well as giving and receiving peer feedback.

Online course design
In a blended learning environment, this course combines remote Zoom conference meetings, which include forum debates, small group discussions, and guided individual work. Participation in the video conference meetings via audio and video is therefore required in order to validate attendance.
English language skills
A prerequisite to benefit from this course is that participants should have achieved the English level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and be progressing towards level C2.
