The key documents included in your application are the cover letter and your CV. We will discuss both genres and strategies for writing successful applications. We will also address differences between applications in German and English (and, for example, between applications in the US and UK).

How to Find a Topic, Conduct Research, and Get Started on a Major Writing Project or Thesis (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Micha Edlich

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Mi, 29.05.2024, 14:15 - Mi, 29.05.2024, 15:45 | Online-Veranstaltung | Online: Meeting ID: 998 2796 7754; Passcode: 817346

Inhalt: In this workshop, you will acquire the necessary skills needed to begin and develop writing projects such as longer research papers or a thesis. More specifically, you will test several tools that allow you generate and organize ideas, to identify a topic, to limit the scope of an investigation, and to draft the first proposal for this project. By adding these versatile tools to your repertoire, you will also be better prepared to tackle some of the common challenges at the beginning of the writing process, for example procrastination or information overload. Learn how to juggle different practices—conducting research, reviewing the literature, developing and outline, and/or writing heuristically—and get a head start on your next major writing project or your bachelor or master’s thesis. This workshop is a prerequisite for master‘s students who are registered for the follow-up in-person event on December 15.

Grammar for Academic Writers: A Brief Introduction (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Micha Edlich

Inhalt: For obvious reasons, this workshop neither aims to provide a basic overview of English grammar nor does it adopt a specific approach to this issue. That said, the grammatical issues addressed in this workshop may help participants (a) to identify and edit common grammatical problems (especially for non-native speakers of English) in their texts and (b) to expand their repertoire when it comes to syntactical patterns that are commonly used in academic writing. 

Writing with AI Tools (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Micha Edlich

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Di, 18.06.2024, 14:15 - Di, 18.06.2024, 15:45 | intern | intern C.5 122

Inhalt: The release of OpenAI’s popular ChatGPT in late November 2022 has sparked heated debates in higher education and beyond about the possibilities and potential pitfalls of this powerful generative AI and similar tools. As the technology underpinning AI tools continues to improve at a dramatic pace, administrators, faculty, and students try to adjust to the new realities. Many of the consequences for learning, teaching, and doing research are difficult to predict, but it seems clear that these tools are here to stay and will affect the ways in which we write in academia and other professional contexts. Providing some guidance in uncertain times, this workshop focuses on technological, legal, ethical, and pedagogical implications of using AI tools for academic work such as writing research papers. Specifically, we will explore some of the following questions: How can AI tools be used properly and ethically during the writing process? What is their potential, what are their limits, and in which case might they even pose a threat to academic codes of conduct or research ethics? How can we use these tools to foster learning and to develop as writers of academic texts? To find at least preliminary answers to these questions, we will use different strategies—tinkering with AI tools, short inputs by the instructor, and writing and other activities to encourage reflection. Think of this workshop not as a class in a traditional sense but as an event at which curious and open minds explore complex issues in an interactive manner. Please note that we will not dwell on how these tools work in a technical sense, although an at least metaphorical understanding (to use Jerome Lanier’s and Cal Newport’s approach) is crucial if you are considering using any of current crop of AI tools. I added a few (very accessible and exceedingly well written) texts to myStudy, which introduce you to these tools and walk you through some of the possible implications for people from all walks of life. As I am writing this description, it is not clear whether or when students will be able to use ChatGTP courtesy of IT Services and in line with European data protection regulations and privacy laws. Please check the website of the Media and Information Centre and, if it is available, request access to this tool. Start playing with it to get a sense of what you might be able to do with it. In case this tool is not yet available via IT Services and you would still like to test some of the AI tools (and not only watch me and others do so), please set up an account with OpenAI (ChatGPT), Google’s Gemini, and/or Elicit (or any other AI tool that you have been using or want to use). Please also bring a laptop or mobile device such as an iPad. Please keep in mind that when using these tools in this manner, you are responsible for your actions.

Writing Arguments (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Micha Edlich

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Fr, 21.06.2024, 10:15 - Fr, 21.06.2024, 11:45 | intern | intern C.5 122

Inhalt: The output of academic research and learning—journal articles, books, papers, and so on—can be seen as contributions to an ongoing debate among established researchers and students across time, space, and cultural and linguistic borders. Each of these contributions, ideally, represents an original take on a debate from a distinct perspective and informed by an understanding of what has been said before. Joining this kind of conversation can be a challenge, especially for students, who first have to learn what the debate is, how it works, and how they can begin to join the conversation. More specifically, students need to understand how previous insights (as developed in journal articles, books, and other sources) can become part of their explorations and arguments. This workshop is meant as an introduction to writing academic arguments with a focus on basic principles and conventions that, for the most part, are important regardless of disciplinary context. Using different examples, we will consider how, why, and to what end researchers engage with the work of others and discuss strategies that participants can adopt when using outside sources for their arguments.

Citation and Reference (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Micha Edlich

Termin:
Einzeltermin | Fr, 21.06.2024, 14:15 - Fr, 21.06.2024, 15:45 | Online-Veranstaltung | Online / Meeting ID: 997 5359 4358; Passcode: 589319

Inhalt: For novice academic writers, it is often not all that easy to describe the ideas and positions of others accurately and appropriately. For example, it might not be entirely clear when to use a quotation or a paraphrase or what the proper ratio of quotations and paraphrases should be. Other major challenges include integrating outside sources in a way that these will advance or support an argument or developing a clear position as an author of academic texts (including the related use of the first person). Using several examples and hands-on exercises, we will develop answers to these questions and consider how you, too, can use outside sources effectively and appropriately.
