    First of all, they are designed for students of Nagoya University at all levels, meaning that both graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to join! Second, the content of the workshops comes from a highly popular graduate course at Mei-Writing, “Logical Thinking Skills in Research Writing”.

    The goal of the workshops is simple and straightforward: 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 Prof. Lai will introduce you 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 in your writing.
