Hoe schrijf ik in een academische stijl?

Are you wondering what the academic writing style for your thesis in Dutch should be? Or does your thesis supervisor say that your thesis text does not meet the requirements because it is too subjective or informal, for example? Then this online workshop will help you on your way. You get to work on your own text right away.

We will review some characteristic features of an academic style in Dutch, practice with them and briefly discuss what their function is. Then we look at text material (length about 2 A4) brought in by participants. This allows us to compare the style of these texts with the academic style expected by the teachers. 

Based on this comparison, you can practice rewriting your own text material during the workshop. You will get a clear understanding of what remains to be done and how to approach it. The workshop is designed in such a way that you as a participant will practice a lot yourself, (also) using your own text. At the end of the workshop you will receive a small manual on academic style, which you can use to work on your own.
