21G.225 Advanced Workshop in Writing for Science and Engineering: ESL (MIT) 21G.225 Advanced Workshop in Writing for Science and Engineering: ESL (MIT)

Description

This workshop is designed to help advanced students of ESL and bilingual students to write clearly, accurately and effectively in a professional or academic technical environment. In class, we will focus on analyzing examples of various forms of technical writing. In addition, while 21F.225/6 is not a grammar review, we will address many of the common problems of advanced non-native writers of technical English. Class members will occasionally be the authors of the work under review. They will also occasionally be responsible for leading group discussions and for short oral presentations. The course, then, is not a grammar class nor a thesis editing service though we will spend considerable time developing student's editorial skills. Constructive partic This workshop is designed to help advanced students of ESL and bilingual students to write clearly, accurately and effectively in a professional or academic technical environment.

Embedding Business Start-Up in the University Curriculum

Description

This short resource was originally presented as part of the HEA GEES Subject Centre’s project on Enterprise, Skills and Entrepreneurship in the GEES disciplines, and used in Enterprise modules at University of Leeds. It provides a generic introduction for HE staff to the embedding of business start-up learning opportunities into the curriculum. The author considers various approaches, including the development of a whole module, the integration of appropriate materials throughout the curriculum and where in the curriculum such an approach could sit. Other source materials are also suggested.
