Using Online Language Tools for Academic Writing

  • This event has passed.

June 13, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EDT

Workshop taught by Elena Danilina

This synchronous workshop will be offered online and will not be recorded. Please register to recieve the confirmation e-mail with the workshop details.

Emerging AI-based language tools for academic learning offer opportunities for students to make choices in their own writing, and yet almost every online tool advises students to check their own work. In this 90-minute workshop, we will examine the dangers of using these tools inappropriately and explore strategies for using online language tools, such as Writefull and Ref-n-Write, to develop and  proofread your work. We will learn how to use built-in academic phrasebanks, generate ideas for your writing, and avoid plagiarism and self-plagiarism issues.

This is the first of 2 workshops in the Online Tools for Academic Writing workshop series.
