Writing Tutorials: A Virtual Community of Practice

Sun, Nov 14, 16:05-16:30 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 11

Academic writing is a challenging subject to teach as well as to take. One way to support students and teachers in this process is by establishing a writing tutorial system. This presentation will share experiences of students, tutors, teachers, and coordinators as members of a virtual community of practice that provides newcomers the support they need and experienced writers a chance to share their expertise.
