    We are very happy to present you the special workshop series on logical thinking skills for academic writing via Zoom. Gifu university students are also welcome to participate. These are very special workshops indeed!

    First of all, they are designed for all students of Nagoya University, meaning that both graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to join! Second, the content of the workshops comes from a highly popular Graduate School Common Course, “Logical Thinking Skills for Research Writing”. Third, if you are an undergraduate student and planning to apply for the course, Summer Camp , then it would be an advantage to take the workshop series.

    The goal of the workshops is to help you develop necessary logical thinking skills for writing clearly and convincingly. If you have difficulty knowing how to present your research ideas clearly, or if you have difficulty convincing others about the significance of your research, or if you simply have no idea how to start writing an academic paper, then these are the workshops for you!!

    At the workshops Dr. Lai will introduce a special method for thinking and writing logically. He will present you a set of logical thinking skills which are exclusively designed for academic writing. And he will teach you, through a step-by-step guidance, how you can practically apply those skills to your writing.
