Writing a Discussion: A Workshop from KI Academic Writing Support

2016-04-1909:00 to 12:00 Synapsen 1, in the Solna libraryCampus SolnaUniversity Library

KI Academic Writing Support offers a workshop on how to write a discussion. The workshop is free of charge and is primarily aimed at master’s students writing their theses.

The workshop will focus on aspects such as:

  • the function of the discussion
  • the relationship between the  discussion and other parts of the thesis, primarily the introduction, the results section, and the conclusion
  • the form of the discussion
  • how to make your text more clear and coherent.

We will go through and analyze the discussions of a couple of published articles, and there will be an opportunity to work on your own texts, and/or discuss them with other students (if you wish).

The workshop is designed to be helpful regardless of how far you have come in the writing of your discussion.  If you have not started writing yet, or just started, you can use the session to get started and outline your discussion. If you have written quite a bit – perhaps a whole draft – you can use the session to revise your text and make it more clear.

The workshop will be offered twice, once with the added possibility to return after lunch to continue working on your text (or discuss it with another student), while you also have access to a writing tutor with whom you can discuss your text.

Session 1: Friday, April 15, 9-12, with the added possibility to return for a work session 13-15.

Session 2: Tuesday, April 19, 9-12.

Venue: Synapsen 1, in the Solna library (for all sessions)
