This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), offered in partnership with online learning provider Coursera, is a free resource for university students who are currently involved in writing assignments or degree projects as well as for students who wish to learn about academic writing in order to prepare for future writing tasks at university. Although the course provides guidance to all student writers, it targets specifically those who are writing in second language learner contexts and whose native language is not English.
The course has been developed by three of the instructors in the English unit: Satu Manninen, Ellen Turner, and Cecilia Wadsö Lecaros. It is open to anybody who wants to develop their academic writing in English. Additional details about the course as well as information about how to register can be found here.
