Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The aim of the course is to gradually improve academic writing skills and equip students with tools which can be used in their future academic careers, including writing dissertations. During the course students learn how to write a well-structured academic essay based on sources, but the writing skills are not limited to essays only and can be easily transferred to other types of academic writing. This course also emphasizes the ethical use of AI in academic writing and the development of critical thinking. The course provides a solid basis for further and more confident practice in academic writing necessary in the university context.

Metody i kryteria oceniania: (tylko po angielsku)

The teaching approach focuses on the students and their active participation in class (action-oriented approach). Students often work in pairs and groups. The course is partly based on the flipped classroom method where students complete the preparation stage before classes. This method allows for more efficient interaction during classes.

All students are expected to use laptops in class and to produce written assignments. Reviewing essay drafts on smartphones will not be acceptable. Class and supplementary materials will be available on Google Classroom.

Formative assessment plays a significant role in the development of writing skills therefore, each student will receive feedback on their written work at various stages of the process of writing and will be asked to act upon it. Live feedback on essay drafts will be given in class in the second half of the course.

All students are urged to keep the set deadlines for submission of assignments. Failure to meet the assigned deadlines will result in a lower grade and no feedback.
