The course has three parts, namely: (a) Writing for International Publication: From Thesis to Article; (b) Academic Publication: Navigating the Peer-review Process; and (c) Presenting at International Conferences: Posters and Presentations. The course takes a hands-on approach, i.e. course participants will be encouraged to interact with real texts (theirs and others’) through analyses and discussions. The forms of assessment for each part include a suggested project with a clear practical application; in addition, each student will be able to adjust the specific aspects of each assessment task in order to make it more relevant for their particular circumstances (e.g. if they are working on a publication while they attend the workshop, they would be allowed to use that project as a basis for their project).

The course is assessed by means of continuous assessment (active participation in class discussions and tasks) and a series of written, oral, and digital assignments.
Language of instruction: English.
