 Title: Developing English Language Writing and Thinking Skills in a Writing Center

主题:在 写作中心提高你的英文写作技巧及英语思维

 Abstract: Dr. Curtis will focus on developing argumentative or persuasive academic writing skills in English, which relates to notions of ‘critical thinking’. Developing such skills in a Writing Center can be very different from doing so in a regular writing class. For example, writing center work is usually individualized and immediate, one-to-one and face-to-face. This changes the dynamic of the interactions between the teacher and the student in a number of important and significant ways. The second part of his talk will, then, focus on the lessons he has learned over the last 20 years, as an English language teacher of academic writing at the university level, and from his experiences of creating a new Writing Center for the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 摘要Curtis博士会围绕辩证思维的概念,给大家讲述英文辩论性写作及说服性写作技巧。通过RELO “写作中心来发展这些写作技巧,会与常规写作课程大不相同。比如, “写作中心是个性化的现场面对面,一对一的即时指导,这在很多方面优化了师生之间的互动。讲座的二部分Curtis博士侧重于介绍他过去20年来,作为大学学术英语写作老师,以及作为香港中文大学写作中心的创立人,所收获的宝贵经验。
