The Learning Development team at Plymouth University are pleased to be hosting the 16th biennial WDHE conference next year. The conference focus is ‘Spaces and Places to Write’ and areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Communication
What makes communication effective?
Does how we communicate affect what we communicate?
How can we develop writing fluency and what does it mean to write ‘well’?

Collaboration
Exploring collaborative approaches to (academic) writing.
What can collaborative projects bring to writing?
What alternatives can we offer staff and students to the traditional notion of the ‘lone scholar?

Creativity
Exploring creative (academic) writing.
Can we (and should we) challenge the constraints of the ‘traditional academic’ text’?
What other textual forms can be used to produce and communicate knowledge and learning?
