Conference 2019

     „Variety and diversity in writing.
       Accompanying writing processes individually“

Conference organized by the Writing Center at FHWien der WKW
November 7, 2019, 9 am - 6 pm

Please note that the conference language is German. However, there will be lectures in English language too (see conference program).

Our varied methods for assisting students with academic writing are based on a range of target groups, who all have different needs. These groups are usually characterized by a cultural, linguistic and social variety and diversity. Writers with heterogeneous educational backgrounds and writing biographies, from different disciplines or those who do not have German as their first language, as well as international or part-time students - all these call for individual support and guidance during their writing process. The focus of this year's conference is on the question, how teaching can be designed to meet the needs and requirements of this heterogeneous target group(s).
