This paper supports students to develop an understanding of the expectations of writing at university, and to develop an awareness of what constitutes quality writing in the context of university disciplines. Students engage in analysing how effective texts are written and they analyse their own. Students are introduced to writing processes such as generating ideas, planning, researching the topic, composing drafts, and editing. The paper takes the view that academic writing expertise develops over time, is underpinned by reading, and requires a knowledge of the academic context in which it is produced.
