Thinking Your Way Into Research Writing

online course

To communicate research effectively, we need to present a clear logic that takes us from an interesting question to a meaningful answer. We need to show people why our questions are of interest to them and how the work we present contributes to our understanding of a problem or our ability to do something. What anyone who has tried to do this understands, though, is that our own thinking is not so linear and clean. We need to go down many blind alleys before we can help other people to avoid doing so. It is important to realise, then, that it is our own explicit thinking that allows us to present our work clearly and make it convincing. Too often, we approach the challenge of effective research writing as a problem of presentation and documentation — but just as research design can be optimised by clear thinking, so research communication is dependent on it.


i) Introductory session: 23rd of April at 16h00 (PT time)

Dr. Patten will offer a general presentation on frameworks for thinking and writing about research. This is open to researchers at all levels and provides an introduction to his work and thinking at the boundary between research and writing.

Join us!
