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