Course content

This course is an exciting new qualification for graduates and professionals interested in studying, researching, and teaching writing.

The focus of the course is on writing, rhetoric, and literacies research, and on how this research can inform the teaching of writing and writing development. The course programme aims to build upon the strength of the Centre for Academic Writing in the teaching of and research into academic writing, as well as Coventry University’s pioneering establishment of a Centre for Academic Writing.

The course begins by teaching key pedagogies for supporting academic writing for both study and professional writing purposes.

It also aims to provide grounding in the theories and practices of how to set up and manage a writing centre, programme, or initiative. The course then offers in-depth learning about how to support postgraduates, academics, and researchers in writing for publication in English, and about how to develop students’ writing in the disciplines. Importantly, you will also be taught how to research academic writing.
