In the Autumn 2021 Term, the Language Support (Språkstödet) at Dalarna University will offer a series of workshops on thesis writing. These workshops are specifically intended for students who are in the process of writing their degree thesis in English, but all students are welcome. The series consists of 4 practical workshops focused on how to write the different sections of the degree thesis. We hope to see you there!
The workshops are led by Joseph Lee, Senior Lecturer in English Linguistics, Dalarna University
Workshop 1: Writing the Introduction
The first workshop in the series focuses on writing the introduction of the degree thesis. We will discuss the purpose of the introduction and outline characteristics of successful introductions. We will examine the rhetorical moves and language used in the introduction and analyse sample thesis introductions to better understand how to write this section. Students are encouraged to bring a draft of their own introduction.
