The Writing Center at the Language Center promote the scientific writing skills of students and doctoral candidates: In our regular interdisciplinary workshops and seminars, they learn strategies for independently taking the steps of the individual writing process:
- Time and self-management during the writing project
- Writing strategies and overcoming writing difficulties
- Good scientific practice and plagiarism prevention
- Structure texts logically, formulate them scientifically, and revise them effectively.
In addition to our regular courses, we have developed various formats in order to support you as a lecturer, specialist or institute director and your colleagues in their work with students:
Would you like to give students a brief and compact overview of the central topics of academic writing? In our free 3-hour course format "Academic Writing 'to go'" we introduce you to the requirements and methods of academic writing.
Would you like to give the students of your course an insight into academic writing? We would be happy to come to you and take over one or more lesson units on academic writing topics. We offer our didactic writing knowledge and you can supplement it with the conventions and peculiarities specific to your subject or institute.
Do you have a specific target group for whom you would like intensive coaching on the topics of academic writing? We are happy to develop intensive workshops of one or more days according to your wishes, including organisation, preparation and implementation by qualified teachers as well as all materials.
In the course of the internationalization efforts of the University of Stuttgart, there are now many students and doctoral candidates who have to formulate English-language academic texts. In this two-day intensive seminar, the participants not only learn how to master their writing process with individual writing strategies, but also the requirements and conventions on a structural and linguistic level. We examine texts from the English-speaking academic community in order to apply the requirements in a second step to our own current or future writing projects. The teaching languages are English and German. We are happy to adapt this offer according to your wishes. An individual follow-up with writing advice and/or proofreading service is possible.
In addition to these offers, other forms of support are also possible: In an initial discussion, we can discuss your needs and jointly develop possible formats. Simply contact us: info[at]schreibwerkstatt.uni-stuttgart.de or use the form below.
We are looking forward to work with you.
