Language Classroom Content & Pedagogy College & University Education Practice-Oriented Short Workshop

Best Practices of Teaching Academic Writing Online for the New Normal

Mon, Nov 15, 13:25-13:50 Asia/Tokyo

Location: Room 01

This presentation’s focus is on best practices for teaching academic writing based on formative and summative feedback in an integrated writing process and reflection on standard writing pedagogy. By suggesting how these strategies of the past can be reframed in a digital context and combined for both asynchronous and synchronous learning opportunities, it explores the new normal in a post-COVID world where online learning, or at least hybrid learning contexts, are here to stay.
