CIC Doctoral Researcher Sophie Abel specialises in academic writing, and has just published a free course on UTS Open, entitled “Writing an Abstract“.
This is about an hour’s tutorial introducing the hallmarks of a good abstract, including a wide range of engaging interactive exercises. The course is based on Sophie’s PhD who brings her expertise in Academic Language & Learning to the challenge of designing automated feedback on writing.
The course concepts are carried through into AcaWriter, CIC’s AI-powered tool that gives instant formative feedback on drafts. Enrolled learners from anywhere in the world have free access to this via the course. You can learn more the tool on the orientation website.
