Введение в академическое письмо на английском языке

Наталья Долгова

УНИВЕРСИТЕТ БЕЗ ГРАНИЦ

Этот курс предназначен для аспирантов и преподавателей, которые заинтересованы впоследствии публиковать свои работы в англоязычных научных журналах; соответственно, для участия в курсе необходимо довольно свободное владение английским языком.
В течение курса мы будем разбирать, как организовать стандартную научную статью, чтобы она доносила основные идеи автора наиболее четким, связным и убедительным образом. Этот курс также ставит своей целью тренировку важных академических навыков, среди которых: перефразирование, суммирование, оценка источников, сравнение и контраст, репрезентация численных/статистических данных, поиск материалов для исследования и способы документации и библиографии в статьях. Преподаватель будет давать письменные комментарии в ответ на задания, поэтому каждое задание будет проходить несколько ступеней редактирования, чтобы максимально повторить процесс, к которому прибегают академические журналы, когда готовят научные статьи к публикации.

Syllabus

Introduction to Academic Writing
Writing forms the basis for success in both academic and professional life. In order to write successfully, we must approach problems in a critical and organized manner, develop and evaluate solutions to these problems, and present our ideas to our academic and professional communities. With these critical skills in mind, this course aims to strengthen the students’ ability to write clearly and effectively in the academic world.

Academic writing and research always occur with specific problems in mind. The conventions, rules, and rhetorical structures that guide academic writing are not arbitrary inventions; they exist in order to facilitate the research and analysis of practical and theoretical problems. For this reason, this course will approach writing as part of a structured investigation into specific issues.
