Course Description
The “writing sprints” are a series of monthly workshops offering participants the opportunity to work intensively on their academic writing in English. Participants can choose to attend one or several depending on their writing needs. 
Over the course of the day, participants will work on their own “real-world” writing aided by a supportive and productive online environment. The days are conducted entirely in English, allowing participants to maintain that language’s “mind-set”, while a series of guided exercises, along with group feedback, will allow researchers to break through writing barriers and to become more productive.

Note for participants: Please be prepared and ready to work on your own “real-world” writing!

0,5 Credit Points can be obtained by attending this course. Please contact your faculty for the recognition of performance for the doctoral degree.
