Roundtable Debate: Writing Center Pedagogy: EU & Russian Experiences & Practices
04.12.2019 @ 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.
