Article writing workshop empowers staff

By Menziwa Msibi

The North-West University’s (NWU’s) Mahikeng Campus played host to an article writing workshop that took place from 24 to 26 July to develop staff members’ proficiency in the writing of high-quality articles.

The workshop not only focused on experienced writers of academic articles, but also welcomed those who were less familiar with the realm of writing.

By enhancing the attendees' writing skills, the article writing workshop aimed to arm them with the expertise and methodologies required to produce articles of publication-worthy calibre.

Prof Hannes van der Walt from the Faculty of Education led the workshop, attended by staff members from the research niche area Global Innovative Forefront Talent (GIFT). He said that learning advanced writing techniques will yield substantial benefits for all involved.

The workshop was a great success – five articles were fully completed, necessitating only minor refinements before being publication-ready. The other 17 articles are also well on their way to completion, attesting to the participants' dedication to applying their newfound knowledge.
