Academic and Scholarly Writing Videos by Louis Hoffman, PhD

Many of these videos were developed in response to common struggles I noticed when grading student papers. The videos are linked below.

The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called ‘truth.’
