C-T-R-W Exploratory Model: Critical Thinking-Reading-Writing
Academic writing is an important aspect of professional development for both students and lecturers. Over the past seven years, support for academic staff in academic writing and publishing has been evolving through consultancy, workshops and CPD opportunities. During this time, an exploratory model was introduced for supporting critical thinking, reading and writing skills. The CPD Module in Academic Writing and Publishing (AWP) for academic staff and postgraduate students exemplifies the model.
