Writing Development in Higher Education Conference

2nd Jul 2012 - 12:00am

Edge Hill University

This international conference explores writing development in higher education and is of relevance to a wide range of practitioners and researchers.

The Writing Development in Higher Education Conference aims to maintain a clear and established commitment to sustaining an academic community for those engaging with teaching, researching, supporting and developing academic writing in its many forms. The conference will have a particular focus on the ways in which student experiences of learning, teaching and assessment can be enhanced through writing. It will also provide opportunities to analyse the role of writing for academics and other staff within the higher education context.

Of further interest is the role of writing as an integrative activity for students and/or tutors new to higher education, for those engaging with postgraduate and research-based provision or for others in professional and practice-based contexts. Connections between writing in higher education and the expectations for writing beyond (or between) higher education and employment offers a rich context to explore the central role of writing in our life-long learning processes.

Taking place from Monday 2nd to Wednesday 4th July 2012, the conference is of relevance to a wide range of practitioners and researchers with a clear commitment to the ways in which students’ experiences of learning, teaching and assessment can be enhanced through their engagement with writing.
