Conference 2017

“Teaching writing at universities – collecting and exchanging concepts, methods and practical exercises”

Please note that the conference organized by the Writing Center in 2017 is in German.

April 28, 2017
Concepts, methods, work materials, practical exercises and innovative ideas for teaching writing skills are the focal points of this year’s conference organized by the Writing Center at FHWien der WKW. Diverse teaching models will be presented in a keynote speech, in workshops and poster sessions. The interactive exchange of materials will positively impact teaching at universities of applied sciences and create a platform between teaching staff, writing trainers and writing advisors so that they can exchange ideas. The aim is for teachers to continue to inspire students in their academic writing.

“Toolbox for teaching”: Focusing on concepts, methods and practical exercises

We will concentrate on the following topics during our workshop:

  • Which curricula, degree programs and concepts promote the development of writing skills in universities of applied sciences?
  • Which methods are effective at conveying academic writing strategies?
  • Which creative and innovative teaching concepts are currently used in teaching or are planned for use in the future?
  • Which work materials and practical exercises promote an academic reading and writing culture?
  • Which blended learning and/or online formats are useful to acquire writing skills?

The conference is addressed at teaching staff from universities who instruct students in academic writing as well as independent writing trainers and advisors and everyone interested in the art of teaching academic writing.
