3rd Conference of the European Association
Conference Topic: Teaching Writing On Line and Face to Face
Important Dates and Deadlines :
Conference Papers are invited that address the conference topic or any of the themes and sub-themes listed below.
Theme 1: Technology in teaching and tutoring writing
Theme 2: Viability of Writing Centers: A free service or a free enterprise?
Theme 3: Organizational models for the teaching of academic writing
Theme 4: Cross-national and cross-cultural issues in the teaching of writing
Theme 5: Research & Innovation in the teaching and tutoring of writing
The standard length for presentations will be 35 minutes (25-30 minutes presentation plus 5-10 minutes for discussion). While the assumption is that presentations will be largely speaker-centered, presenters are strongly encouraged to include and involve their audience, presenting in such a way as to stimulate the interest of the audience.
Workshops - Round Tables
Participant-centered workshops or round tables that offer experiential/reflective activities or group discussion on the above themes are also invited. These will last 75 minutes. We would like to emphasize that the role of the workshop leader should focus principally on guiding and facilitating participant discussion and not on presenting information. In round tables, leaders should ensure that discussion is guided and structured and that at least 30 minutes are devoted to interaction, actively involving non-presenters. Those proposing workshops or round tables should include in their abstract an explanation of how and to what extent the participants will be involved in the proposed activities and discussion.
Presentations, workshops, and round tables should be practical in nature and applicable to the classroom or tutoring environment, but should at the same time be grounded in and make reference to writing and teaching theory.
Please bear in mind that the working language of the Conference will be English and that no translation will be available.
Abstracts for all proposals should be maximum 200 words and contain the following information:
