Academic Writing: Quantitative and Qualitative Argument Architecture

This session is divided into two halves, with each focused on two sample journal articles. The first half discusses strategies for creating strong quantitative writing, while the second looks at how to write effective qualitative work. Both halves of the workshop are highly interactive, with writing exercises and reflection built into the materials, in order for participants to try out some of the writing strategies under discussion. The overall aim is to increase participants’ confidence in their writing in relation to constructing effective narratives while using either quantitative or qualitative data.

Who should attend?
Research Active Staff (Research, Academic or Teaching terms & conditions) who want to develop their understanding of narrative structure in relation to either qualitative or quantitative writing.

We do not accept applications from postgraduates or research students. Students should refer to the Student Career and Skills website for details of workshops designed specifically to meet their needs.

Workshop Objectives:

  • To outline and discuss the principles of narrative structure for both qualitative and quantitative writing.
  • To identify strategies for the effective use of both qualitative and quantitative data.
  • To analyse and critique sample articles in order to establish good writing practice for organising both qualitative and quantitative writing.
  • To use writing exercises to help participants engage with narrative architecture in their writing.
  • To provide the opportunity for participants to discuss best writing practice with colleagues.
