Goal of the pilot is to produce video materials and online assignments on academic writing (structure and process of academic text, peculiarities of academic text etc.) for many purposes: in the bachelor seminars we’ll change the teaching method from traditional lecturing to interactive learning and the material will be used also in academic writing courses in Aalto and other universities and in university pedagogy courses in Aalto.
