Foundations of Academic Writing (1019LHS)

This course provides an introduction to the distinctive conventions and practices of writing for assessment in university courses. It focuses on the academic essay in its various forms, especially on the strategies successful academic writers use to incorporate information and viewpoints from existing sources, while at the same time forming and expressing their own independent viewpoint. It is thus an essential training for students in navigating their way through existing knowledge without incurring the risk of plagiarism. The course will be of particular relevance to students in all areas of humanities and social science. INCOMPATIBLE: OUA Course Code Equivalent : COM10.
