Student writing is at the cener of teaching and learning in higher education. Students are assessed by what they write, and are only accepted within an academic discipline when they have mastered the writing conventions and style necessary for that discipline. Teaching Academic Writing is a 'toolkit' to help higher education lecturers and tutors teach student writing. Containing a range of diverse teaching strategies, the book offers both practical activities to help students develop their writing skills, and guidelines to help lecturers and tuthors think in more depth aboiut the feedback they give to students. The authors explore a wide variety of text types, from essays and reflective diaries to research projects and laboratory reports. The book draws on recent research and takes into account developments such as the increasing diversity of the student body, the use of the Internet, electronic tuition, and issues surrounding globalization. Written by experienced higher education teachers, Teaching Academic Writing will be of interest to anyone involved in teaching academic writing in higher education.
