Learning to organise your information in a conventional way using conventional language is the most straightforward way to producing comprehensible writing. This workshop will help you understand the structure of a typical article/thesis: Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion/Conclusion. Each section will be considered in turn by looking at the type of information included and the kind of sentences and vocabulary used to convey that
information. This knowledge will then be placed in your disciplinary context by studying good examples of the kind of writing you would like to produce. As many conventions in research writing are common to all disciplines and at all career levels, my workshop is open to all individuals with the motivation to improve their writing. Simply apply what you learn here to writing in your own discipline.
