Roundtable Debate: Writing Center Pedagogy: EU & Russian Experiences & Practices

Декабрь 4 @ 12:00 - 15:30

Building an effective writing center is difficult. “One off” institutional initiatives often bring only temporary benefits. Attempts to close every benchmark and best-practice gap also end in disappointment. A sustainable writing center is among the most powerful assets a university can build. Sustained writing centers ensure the development of faculty’s professional competency in academic writing that is required to increase scholarly publications in peer-reviewed international journals indexed in Scopus or Web of Science. To help researchers acquire ESL academic writing competency, institutional writing centers should map out a specific “model” characterized by a distinct set of practices. Writing center leaders should identify the one that most closely matches their strategic aspirations. The trick then is to be truly great in a handful of practices rather than trying to master them all.
The event will raise awareness of the existing EU and Russian writing center theories and practices and get the participants to talk about legitimacy and the problem of institutional change.
