Online Academic Writing Workshop

The Learning Centre offers UNSW students an online self-access writing skills workshop series delivered via Moodle. The workshop has lessons on paraphrasing and summarising skills for assignments such as literature reviews, essays and critical reviews. These workshops are delivered in Moodle and are offered free of charge.

There are 14 Lessons designed to help students improve their academic writing skills by reviewing information and completing quizzes and short writing tasks. These lessons can be completed by students in their own time and pace and students can choose which lessons to attempt.

Each lesson takes two to four hours to complete.  A tutor is present each week to welcome new students and to prompt students to participate in the forums.

  • Start date:  2017 workshop will open on 1 February 2017
  • End date: 31 January 2018
Please note: The 2016 workshop will close on January 31 2017. In mid-January 2017, Pam will send a new enrolment key to students currently enrolled in the 2016 workshop so they can continue visiting the workshop if they wish to do so.
