wöchentlich | Freitag | 10:15 - 13:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 6.026

Inhalt: Ready for a challenge? Feel like giving your writing and speaking skills a fine-tuning? Do you want to find out more about the potential benefits and limitations of digital writing tools, while gaining a deeper understanding of film? If so, then this course might be the course for you. Each participant will gain experience working with a variety of academic texts that can help writers to improve their writing style, editing, and revision skills. Due to the heterogeneity of seminar participants, the instructor will assist students in developing their own writing style and mentor them on an individual basis. Furthermore, academic writing does not have to be boring, mechanical, or dry. Thus, we will take a closer look at sentence variety, voice, and the creative use of language. These are topics that digital writing tools, such as Grammarly, have not yet mastered. After learning about various techniques, course participants will discover the fine art of knowing when and how to use creative approaches in academic writing. Moreover, after a brief introduction to film studies, we will discuss, learn to appreciate, and analyze one film that the students will choose.
