CIP SYMPOSIUM 2015 - Academic literacies: Writing in the Disciplines
On Thursday 29 October 2015, CIP's annual symposium titled "Academic literacies: Writing in the Disciplines" took place.
The aim of the annual CIP symposium is to discuss central issues regarding the use of languages at universities and work places.
This year, we focus on how students learn the writing skills required within their disciplines.
Around a hundred participants from far and near had signed up for this year's CIP Symposium. Throughout the day, the participants took part in the debate that was generated from the three presentations and the panel discussion.
The programme consisted of the following features:
Exploring Argumentation and Writing in the Disciplines: The Roles of Learning to Argue and Arguing to Learn in Acquiring L2 Academic Literacy
