Clear and convincing writing

Those who write convincingly reap the benefits of that. Being able to outline clear arguments in a readable discourse is a skill that will come in useful in both your studies and your working life. Many students start writing without knowing precisely where the text will end or what the criteria are for the writing assignment. We're going to change that way of working with this module.


    Please note: this module is taught in Dutch.

    What will we be doing?

    In this module, you'll be working on a clear and convincing essay on a theme of your choice. In several steps, you'll work out an initial idea for an assertion into a fully completed essay. You'll receive peer feedback at every step. A number of skills are involved, including formulating clearly, structuring, arguing, and managing your own writing process. If you like, you can have your essay published afterwards in the Honours Opinies series.


    Between sessions, you'll be writing an essay in various steps and giving your fellow students feedback on their work. These interim assignments and the feedback are conditional criteria for successful completion of the module, in addition to assessment of the end assignment - your finished essay. Study materials and assignments will be provided through Brightspace.


    The lecturer for this module is test is Griet Coupé. Griet got her PhD in linguistics at Radboud University and now works as coordinator of the Radboud Writing Lab and senior lecturer in Academic Communication at Radboud in'to Languages.


    The module consists of four sessions on Monday evenings from 18:30 to 21:00.

    The Radboud Honours Academy believes that learning is best experienced when we work together in the same space, so physical presence is required. If you know that there are one or more sessions that you cannot attend, please choose a different module, so that you can get the best out of this experience, with your fellow students.
