For too long, academic writing has been seen as an intimidating activity both for students and their teachers alike.

The purpose of this workshop is to introduce what I have called the five pillars of academic writing and to show that many of the activities used in the academic writing classroom are in fact similar to the ones used in General English classes.

By focusing on appropriate language development, the use of scaffolding, an awareness of patterns of analysis/rhetorical functions, the process of writing and academic conventions, we can provide our students with much of what is required to become more confident writers for academic purposes.

Preparing for the Workshop

Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries

I might feel a little more confident now if I get a student preparing for IELTS. Great workshop.


First of all, we should make sentences and then can form paragraphs which was very good idea by Neil.

Fantastic masterclass! A very accurate, detailed and deep view of Academic Writing and how to approach it. I have learnt a great deal from this masterclass and the constructive discussions, as well as from the examples provided. Thank you very much Neil, Your discourse is clear, objective and encouraging and, as a learner, this is what really benefits us. Thank again Neil, Hedwig and Gallery Teachers. You are great!
