Academic Writing and Presentations in English

Writing Skills Courses

The following writing skills courses take place in the winter term 2022/23 on a weekly basis. They are equivalent to 2 SWS and offer a generous time frame to get to know and test different dimensions and strategies of academic writing and presentations and to implement them in your own individual projects (term papers, presentations, etc.).

Academic Writing and Reading C1
The course pursues two goals: it creates the environment for students to work on their individual writing projects by engaging them in reading. It also uses reading as a means to reflect on writing. Students will read and analyze authentic essays, speeches, and academic articles from a variety of fields to improve their reading comprehension skills and to learn more about successful writing strategies. Students will work on writing projects of their choice. For students from all departments

Presentation Skills: Speaking and Listening C1
Giving presentations, participating in Q&A sessions, or talking spontaneously in a variety of professional contexts often is accompanied by our lack of confidence and the feelings of anxiety or even fear. This course is designed to help you manage these wholly natural conditions that most presenters experience. It does so by providing training and experience in planning, organizing, and delivering your presentation to small groups as well as in engaging in a meaningful conversation with your audience. The second objective of the course is to help you become an active listener and observer who knows how to take notes, ask meaningful questions, or ask for clarifications. The third objective of the course is to teach you how to lead a small group discussion and to elicit opinions from other group members. For students from all departments

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on Campus Nord. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. The university can also be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The Airport Express is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
