ÖGEM Lisansüstü Seminer Serisi-1
SEMINAR DESCRIPTION: Graduate writing is a consistent challenge for graduate students, regardless of their background or experience. In this workshop, we will cover three topics that can increase your capacity for effective graduate writing. First, we will discuss key writing principles that can deepen engagement with the task of academic writing. Second, we will explore revision strategies that can assist you in improving the structure, sentences, and flow of your writing. Finally, we will consider how to build a productive writing routine. Learning to write is a crucial part of graduate education; the goal of this workshop is to help you develop an autonomous approach to managing your writing life.
