Two briefing meetings on both the Cape Town and Bellville campuses, signaled the launch of the Writing to Learn in ECP Action Research Project. This project is a direct follow-up from the Writing at University:Thinking Differently workshops facilitated by Mary Lea in January.
This RIFTAL funded research project aims to encourage and support ECP lecturers to integrate writing into their subject teaching in more holistic ways. With the strong action research focus of this project, it is hoped many of the participants will be able to develop and evolve their pedagogic interventions into a bona-fide research undertaking and present their findings at upcoming teaching and learning conferences. Participants will meet again for a workshop session on the Action Research Method on 14 June 2016. More information about this project, along with the notes and audio recording of the Cape Town briefing meeting can be found of the project’s web page – see Writing to Learn.
