The Centre for Academic Writing (CAW) at Coventry University will be hosting the 15th biennial Writing Development in Higher Education (WDHE) Conference from Wednesday 9th July to Friday 11th July 2014.
‘Future Directions in Academic Writing’
15th biennial Writing Development in Higher Education (WDHE) Conference and 20th Anniversary Celebration of the Founding of the WDHE Network
The WDHE Network’s listserv and biennial conference have been integral to charting the development of Academic Writing pedagogy and theory in UK universities over the past twenty years.
Since the Network’s founding in 1994 in response to national concerns about the standards of students’ writing, the field of Academic Writing has emerged both in terms of the growth of university-level writing development provision and an upsurge of Academic Writing research.
WDHE 2014 will provide an important opportunity for delegates to reflect on how and why the field of Academic Writing has grown and to consider what ‘Future Directions in Academic Writing’ pedagogy and scholarship will take in order to sustain and develop further the teaching and researching of writing in higher education.
Longstanding WDHE Network colleagues as well as those who are new to Academic Writing teaching and research are welcome to attend, as the conference is open to anyone who has an interest in Academic Writing development.
