Caroline EisnerWe know that for academics and researchers, writing well means being able to write academically in the discursive styles of a specific discipline. Furthermore, when Writing in the Discipline programs are firmly in place, faculty across the disciplines work with students in their courses through assignments and assessments, in-class instruction, and course readings to understand and articulate the disciplinary discourse conventions of that discipline. In this one-hour webinar, we will discuss the components of clear academic writing and how these components apply to the discourse conventions across the disciplines. We will also review what clear academic writing is across disciplines and how to think about, practice, and teach the discourse conventions of specific disciplines.
