Beschreibung: In this practical course, cognitive science students are guided how to write empirical research papers and theses academically. We discuss the function of the various parts of a research paper – abstract, introduction and literature review, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, and bibliography – and by which linguistic means they are realized. Examples of best practices for writing these parts are provided. The usage of digital tools for literature search as well as corpus resources for writing (e.g., Sketch Engine) are encouraged and practiced. Homework assignments are given in view of practicing the usage of these tools and for increasing students’ writing skills.
The course is situated in the broader context of empirical research in an open science perspective and aims to commit students to follow the ethical standards of academic writing and good academic practise. Challenges to academic writing following the launching of Large Language Models (LLMs), e.g. Chat-GP-3 (and follow-up versions) are discussed.
The course has a “pass/non-pass” grade and earns students 4 ECTS credit points.
The course is being co-taught by Annette Hohenberger (IKW) and Janna Gerdes (Schreibwerkstatt).
The course will be held as a hybrid course.
