Conference 2016

„From academic writing to professional writing: developing, promoting and instructing in the art of writing”

Please note that the conference organized by the Writing Center in 2016 is in German.

April 14, 2016

FHWien der WKW, Währinger Gürtel 97, 1180 Wien

This year’s conference will present teaching concepts and models to help with writing in universities. The conference is addressed at teaching staff from universities who instruct students in academic writing and who are interested in expanding their repertoire of methods. The conference is a unique platform for discussion and exchange between teaching staff, writing advisors and people who write professionally.

The focal point of this year’s conference is writing as a key skill for students and professionals. The topic has continued to grow in importance not just in academic education but also for careers. Our keynote speaker is Ulrike Scheuerman, a psychologist and a writer of non-fiction. She will show us how creative writing techniques stimulate both conscious awareness and new ideas.

We will offer three parallel workshop sessions that introduce further teaching methods for scientific and job relevant writing strategies. At the end of the workshop, one thing should be very clear: the importance of conveying and supporting writing skills for university and professional life cannot be overestimated.
