WEBINAR: Academic writing for PhD candidates, post docs and supervisors

The NMBU Writing Centre continues its PhD Webinar Series. For the 2022 Spring semester, our topic is Rhetoric and Writing. By focusing on rhetoric, we can improve our thinking and organization skills, we can read and evaluate writing compositions more easily, and we can create a more effective writing process for our research manuscripts and Kappe. Join us on Zoom each month to develop your understanding of and skills in applying rhetoric to your reading and writing.

This semester the Webinars will use a flipped classroom approach. Participants will be asked to watch a YouTube video and perform a brief exercise before joining the webinar. The one-hour webinar will allow for group discussions, Questions and Answers, and opportunities to further develop understanding about rhetoric and how to apply rhetoric to writing processes.

Our goal is to provide beneficial ideas, skill development, and resources to help you develop important skills, to manage your writing process, and communicate your research more clearly and effectively. By participating in our webinars, you receive expert assistance in developing the necessary skills to develop your personal writing process.
