“Creativity in Research” and “Academic Writing” Day

AdairDr Adair Richards, (trainer, consultant, broadcaster and academic), is delivering a training day for the UN Graduate School on Tuesday, 5th February 2013, covering both Creativity in Research and Academic writing.

Open to all research students, this two-part training day will focus on Creativity in Research in the morning and Academic Writing in the afternoon. The morning session will be an engaging and experiential workshop, aimed at helping researchers learn academically-verified creativity strategies. It will be of use to anyone who wants to improve their ability to think creatively, see problems from different angles, or use their intuition more effectively.

Adair’s afternoon session, in Academic Writing, is aimed at improving academic writing skills, no matter if you have just started your postgraduate studies or whether you are knee-deep in thesis writing. It will cover subjects such as the writing process, critical analysis, paragraph construction, using academic sources, avoiding plagiarism and overcoming writer’s block. Previous attendees of this course have reported that it significantly aided their academic writing.
