One student said:

I particularly enjoyed being able to test the tools on my own article and corpus during the workshop. There are many ways to phrase things but being able to compare with your own corpus really helps determine what is best for your particular situation.”

Learning outcomes

  • Write clear academic texts in an appropriate style, with the help of corpora based on scientific articles from a specific research field
  • Use data-driven learning to independently resolve questions and uncertainties in academic writing
  • Gain insight into the stylistic and lexico-grammatical patterns of published writers in one's field
  • Use a personalised tool for drafting and editing your writing
  • Apply strategies acquired to future writing projects
