Short-Cuts - im­pulses for writ­ing term pa­pers in the semester break

In the semester break, a lot of people are in the middle of an intense writing phase—one or more term papers are waiting to be written. The workshop series “Short-Cuts” will accompany you on this journey. Twice per week, you will receive a 30-minute impulse to help you with drafting your academic writing project.

  • The first Short-Cut will offer inspiration on how you can find the topic of your paper by using writing exercises.
  • During the second Short-Cut you will receive advice on how you can formulate your research question.
  • In the third Short-Cut the topic will receive inspiration on how to actually write a first draft.
  • The topic of the last Short-Cut will be on how to revise your text.

It’s best to take part in all the Short-Cuts, but it is also possible to just take part in one.

The workshop will be held over Zoom.

To get the most out of the workshop we recommend to actively participate in the session and be able to communicate with other participants.
