Learn typing skills while reinforcing knowledge on academic writing.


Non-proficient typing adversely affects the academic writing of university students.

Non-proficient typists allocate more attention to the search for keys, and therefore less focus on the higher cognitive process of writing such as generating, planning, and organising ideas. As a result, the written output of non-proficient typists may be lower of quality.

Our touch-typing training allows writers to free up cognitive resources and bring automaticity to their writing. The training is distinct by its focus on reinforcing students’ knowledge of academic writing as well as improving their typing skills.

The module is aimed at:
