Elements of structure & organisation (W2R)

This workshop is an exploration of the macrostructure of writing, outlining elements which are indispensable to any type of academic writing. Many essays fail to impress through faults of structure; thus this session demonstrates the intellectual ‘selling’ of writing through introductions and the importance of conclusions in drawing the argument together.

By the end of the workshop, you will have:

  • gained an understanding of the concept of academic writing structure
  • assessed its main elements, their role and function
  • examined the content of structural elements
  • assessing the value of opening and concluding paragraphs.
