Apparently I did something wrong when forwarding the following message to the
listserves yesterday because some people were not able to read it. I hope that
this time everybody will be able to read the announcement below.

> Writing program administrators, writing centre staff, teachers,

> EATAW conference, held in cooperation with the first EWCA

> gathering of forces and efforts on the part of Writing Centers

>  teachers, consultants, and Writing Center personnel are now
> expanding on a European level, through the formal establishment
>  of EATAW, EWCA, and the organization of their first
> conference.
>
> The aims of both newly-founded organizations and of the
> conference is to create a forum for European colleagues, to
> support a European development in the teaching of academic
> writing, and to establish a supporting network of Writing Centers
>  developing and functioning within a European context. The
> conference provides means for:
>
> connecting with people and institutions from all European
> Countries and contributing to the creation of a network
>
> exchanging experiences and ‘best practice’ examples from
> teaching and tutoring methods and strategies, as well as of
> theoretical and organizational frameworks (for example
> concerning writing and teaching writing in different writing
> cultures)
>
> providing a venue for teachers and researchers to interact  and
> bringing participants up-to-date on developments in the  fields of
> composition teaching and writing center tutoring in  Europe
>
> The conference marks the formal establishment of EATAW and
> of EWCA with the ratification of their individual constitutions.

> Conference themes:
>
> ‘best practice’ examples (rationale, practice and material) of:
> teaching-the-teachers initiatives
> general writing courses and subject-specific writing courses
> on-line teaching of writing and computer-assisted writing
> instruction
> program establishment (models, politics, strategies, faculty
> development) writing tutoring and counseling practice
> writing center practices in relation to cultural contexts
> the use of peer tutors in second-language contexts
> American and European writing center practices:  convergences
> and divergences:
> what we can gain from and teach one another
> the role of writing centers within the institutional context  (relation
> to writing-across-the curriculum; contribution to institutional
> mission, etc.)
> approaches to the teaching of individual and co-operative
> writing, and pedagogical strategies
> academic genres and subgenres, writing conventions,  academic
> language, writing cultures and intercultural aspects  of academic
> writing instruction
> writing and designing instructional materials for the teaching  of
> academic writing

> cognitive styles of writers and teaching/individual tutoring
> hypotheses on procrastination and blocking in academic  writers
> hypotheses on plagiarism in academic writing
>

> sessions to encourage participation and the exchange of ideas. The
> organizing committee welcomes proposals for panel discussions and
> round table sessions with both:
>
> researchers and teachers discussing the relation between
> theories/empirical findings and the practice of the teaching of  writing, or
>
>
> educational politicians, funding organizations and practitioners
> discussing the financial, political and strategic possibilities for the
> establishment of writing centres and writing programs in Europe.

>  submit a one-page proposal to the organising committee, stating:
>
> who they are
> their subject, approach, rationale and practice (with a focus  on
> the practice of their work, and with theoretical  underpinnings
> where possible)
> the possible practical applicability of their contribution to the
> teaching and/or tutoring of academic writing (contributions  that
> pose open questions and encourage discussions are  preferred
> above presentations of practice)
