Monthly seminar series where speakers present research and innovations in practice, and reflect on personal and institutional experiences of academic writing.
The Academic Writing Centre (AWC) and the Academic Communication Centre (ACC) at the Centre for Languages and International Education (CLIE) are delighted to host the IOE Academic Writing Seminar Series.
Experts in the field from UCL and other higher education institutions will be invited to debate the practices and challenges faced by students and academics as writers, and the models and mechanisms of support for writing found within Higher Education in the UK and globally.
Seminars take place on the last Thursday of the month and consist of a 30-minute talk followed by discussion.
These seminars are held on Zoom and are open to everyone.
