Title: A contextualised writing programme for biological scientists
Authors: Willmott, Christopher J.R.
Issue Date: 2005
Publisher: WDHE
Citation: Proceedings of Writing Development in Higher Education: Valuing and Evaluating Writing in Higher Education, 2005, (CD-ROM)
Abstract: Any discipline has specialised writing conventions over and above more general aspects of good practice. We have developed a range of activities for students following our biological sciences programmes with a view to helping them improve their generic and subject-specific writing skills. These include essay writing (in a variety of guises), report writing and summary work. Many of the activities, such as an exercise on plagiarism and analysis of real exam answers written by a previous cohort, would be readily adaptable for practitioners in other fields.
