Advance HE Teaching & Learning Conference 2018: Academic writing in a global age: Re-examining our assumptions about 'good' academic writing

Key to learning from other academic communities is a clear understanding of our own. This workshop aims to raise awareness of how ideas about 'good' academic writing in UK HE derive from the western tradition and how this impacts on the attainment of our diverse community of students. Two professional writers who help undergraduates and postgraduates improve their writing will stimulate discussion by scrutinising some commonly-used terms and examining some commonly-held assumptions. They will draw on the experience of all participants offer practical advice and encourage future thinking about what globalised academic writing will become.
