The Writing Fellow Programme supports lecturers of the University of Potsdam either in English or German. The aim of the programme is to help students master their writing process in a specific course context by providing individual feedback on texts, and optionally by giving an input on topics such as "Motivation", "The Writing Process", or "Revising the Text". As a lecturer, you can apply with your course for one Writing Fellow.
Writing Fellows are trained student writing tutors working at the Writing Assistance. They help students on a peer level with all their questions concerning academic writing. The collaborative approach aims to reduce the students' stress and to generate a positive working environment. Our Writing Fellows will help with questions such as "How to find a research question?", "Is my topic clear?", or "Does my outline show a logical line of argumentation?".
If you have any futher questions feel free to get in touch via e-mail to email@example.com.
We are looking forward to receiving your applications!
