Supervising Academic Writing

Half-day interactive workshop for supervisors

(Exact location will be confirmed to successful registrants)

Writing academically is the often the area where PhD students struggle most, yet it’s an activity that is rarely discussed. This interactive workshop demystifies the process by identifying common problems and offering practical solutions for supporting students at every stage.

Through group discussion and activities, we’ll cover:

  • Using planning techniques

  • Protecting writing time

  • Overcoming procrastination

  • Maintaining momentum

  • Monitoring progress

  • Giving effective feedback

  • Developing a writing style

By the end of the session, attendees will have:

  • Models and templates to support the writing process

  • Suggestions for digital tools to make writing easier

  • Ideas for boosting their own academic writing
