Connections Workshop "A guide to writing effective abstracts"

Facilitated by Dr Jens J. Hansen
(Academic Developer, Pro Vice Chancellor Education Office)

Would you like to submit a proposal for the upcoming Learning and Teaching Forum, or for another academic event? Want to learn about the basics of how to write an effective abstract? Then come to our lunchtime workshop.

An academic abstract is a miniature work of art. Within the confines of a not very many words, a clearly crafted abstract affords a bird’s-eye view and summary of work that may have taken hundreds of hours of work and thousands of dollars to construct. When well prepared, an abstract conveys an overview of the whole as well as a critical delineation of key elements to be found within what follows. There are a range of types of abstracts, each with different functions.

In this workshop, you will not only learn about the criteria for an effective abstract, but will also practise developing and critiquing your own, so please come with an idea of the topic and purpose for your abstract.
