Monthly seminar series where speakers present research and innovations in practice, and reflect on personal and institutional experiences of academic writing.
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.
Sessions will be delivered on the last Thursday of every month. The seminars will consist of a 30 minute talk followed by a discussion.
Seminars will be delivered via Zoom until social distancing restrictions are filled. These seminars are open to anyone.
