Writing Center for the STEM Disciplines
In the field of natural and engineering science, the presentation of research results in publications and project reports is a key component of the daily work routine. However, imparting academic writing skills seems to be of secondary importance in the curricula of most STEM subjects: students write less frequently and far less compared to other disciplines.
Therefore, the writing centre for STEM subjects (“Schreibwerkstatt MINT”) at the University of Bremen aims to support students as well as lecturers of the departments 1-5 in all writing-related processes. The concept of the writing centre combines individual counselling with a range of seminars that can also be integrated in already existing courses.
