Event description

Description

How can one support diversity through the teaching of academic writing? Do some practices reflect tutors’ unconscious biases and thus unintentionally lead to the silencing of diverse voices? Can cultural awareness be fostered through particular tutoring strategies?

This unique workshop co-organised by CELT and the AWC and supported by the NUIG Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Project Fund, will address these questions through presentations and specially designed activites. The workshop will be led by Dr Georganne Nordstrom (University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa), who is an incoming Fulbright fellow working at the AWC. It will include presentations by writing tutors from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and will be conducted via a video-link.

Located in a culturally diverse area with a long history of colonialism, the Writing Centre of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s is committed to facilitating inclusivity through querying current teaching practices and its state-of-the-art approach to writing pedagogy.

The woprkshop aims to to create awareness around issues pertaining to inclusivity and cultural diversity in the area of academic writing. While the workshop should be of special interest to members of staff involved in the teaching of academic writing, it is open to all students and members of staff at NUI Galway
