Academic writing

  • OCSLD’s expertise on writing development provides a range of opportunities for Oxford Brookes staff and other colleagues to enhance their enjoyment of teaching writing and their own productivity as research writers. 

    See more about the Finding time to write, a monthly writing day, 9.30 am - 2.30 pm here.

  • We offer bespoke events both online and face-to-face, to support your priorities. The focus is staff development, and the approach is to collaborate with subject specialists in your own context to identify the best strategies for local writing development.

    OCSLD’s online courses are part-time professional development opportunities which require participants to dedicate 6 hours per week to the course. We welcome both groups and individuals. 

    Mary Deane has spoken at international conferences on writing strategies, researching writing in the disciplines, and academic integrity. She runs successful writing retreats to support writing for research and publication.
    We welcome international visitors to Oxford and can arrange events from 1 to 3 days for groups, which include a range of guest speakers, workshops and social time in Oxford.
