Module Paper Workshop: 19th February - 4th March 24

In  February, a brand new round of our Module Paper Workshop will begin. A small group of students will be supported and accompanied in writing a (module) paper in English.

Students of all disciplines are welcome to join.


Do you know the topic you want to write about but feel a little bit lost, not knowing where to start? You want to learn more about how to structure the reading process, grow or plan the outline of your text, or how to revise and edit your chapters? Here is the answer: Join us for our 2-3-week Module Paper Workshop! You will learn about your individual writing process, get to know different writing tools and have a chance to try out methods which will help you to write a ready-to-hand-in text within 2-3 weeks.

What to expect:

  • 3 weeks: 19th February - 7th March 24
  • every monday and thursday
  • 10 a.m./ 12 p.m.
  • online via Zoom

If you sign up you have to be ready to attend all meetings. You will get enough time to write individually, exchange ideas in groups, and get feedback from our trained writing tutor,  Lea Thelow an Greta Bach-Sliwinski.  At the end of the process, you will be rewared with a text which is ready to be read.

All you need:

  1. An idea! Bring a topic idea for your term paper.
