Webinar: Practical Challenges of Writing Centers: Comparative Analysis of the EU & Russian Experiences
06.04.2020 @ 12:00 - 15:30
|Newly established academic writing centers in Russian universities have to respond to both institutional and methodological challenges. At the core of these challenges is a lack of awareness among the Russian scholarly community of academic writing as a separate branch of scientific and methodological knowledge in addition to insufficient number of specialists, inadequate training and rare publications in this field. To better understand how writing centers function and what services they can provide to develop academic writing skills, academic writing experts, writing center faculty and staff need to study the world experiences, in particular, experiences of European writing centers to introduce best practices. The webinar participants will learn about the existing EU writing centers, their objectives, and the services they provide.|
