Presentations by Mostafa Nazari on Writing Social Science Research Papers

Mostafa Nazari is currently a PhD candidate at Kharazmi University in Tehran, Iran. He completed his Bachelor of Arts in TEFL in Mohaghegh, Ardebili University, Ardebil Iran in 2014. He then received his Masters of Arts, in 2016, from Kharazmi University, Tehran with his thesis titled “The correspondence between Iranian EFL teachers’ dispositions toward task-based language teaching and their TBLT-related instructional practices”. Currently he’s working towards his PH. D. in Applied Linguistics in Kharazmi University. His dissertation title is “Conceptualizing the role of emotions in young English learner teachers’ identity construction: A case study from Iran”. And his research interests are teacher, education and professional development, teacher identity, teacher emotion, teacher cognition, technology and teacher education, action research and language assessment.

Mostafa had delivered three workshops designed to provide a forum for researchers to become more familiar with the structure and content of research articles, specifically, articles of between 6000 to 8000 words that report on the findings of original studies and make empirical contributions to the field of knowledge.

Recorded are three 2-hour sessions, the first delivered on June 16th, 2023 on introductions and literature reviews, the second, on June 17th, 2023, on methodology and outcomes and on June 18th, 2023, Mostafa presents on the discussion and concluding sections of these articles as well as on writing abstracts. The third session is split for some unknown technical reason and are listed as 3 a and 3 b.

The workshops are targeting researchers working on articles for publication as well as university instructors who wish to educate their students and preparing them for submissions to journals in their fields. The workshops are designed to help students hone their professional skills by learning how to structure their research articles on the way to meeting publication standards. Also, freelance researchers might benefit from these workshops, developing their competencies in academic writing.

The EWCA Summer Institute 2023 is the EWCA’s second ever summer institute. Deemed a massive success by all who attended the first EWCA SI in Viadrina, the second SI in the American University of Armenia in Yerevan promises to be just as good if not even better.

The SI traditionally is a time for folks to get away from day-to-day responsibilities and to gather as a cohort, and while the extent to which you get away from mundane matters is up to you, this year’s cohort will enjoy the opportunity to virtually connect with writing center professionals across the globe. Just like in years past, participants can count on the experience to include a generous mix of:

  • Workshops
  • Independent project time
  • One-on-one and small group mentoring
  • Connecting with cohort members
  • Special interest groups
  • Other engaging activities

The EWCA SI is for anyone who is:

  • Interested in or already providing writing support in learning centres, language centres, academic support centers, or writing centers 
  • Starting up a new writing centre or interested in doing so
  • New to directing or working as professional staff a writing center
  • Looking for new direction for their writing center
  • Planning or expanding a writing center career
  • Interested in learning and sharing with writing center and writing support colleagues
  • Ready for more sustained discussions about writing support and/or writing centers than conferences offer

Please, keep the dates free. Come to Yerevan in May, 2023. There’ll be lots of interesting talk and activities. Come hungry and bring your dancing shoes (just in case). 🙂
