This course complements existing academic writing courses by emphasizing learning the process of academic writing (while not ignoring the product). It also focuses on the writer, not only on the process or product of writing. The teaching philosophy is guided discovery, which starts from the points of the expertise that the participants bring with them to the course, and then takes them further. The non- hierarchical method shows the participants that they are taken seriously as research writers, and thus leads them to create their own sense of initiative and responsibility.
