Project Conference - September 2011

On the 12th September 2011, 45 people attended our regional Conference, coming from as far away as the Republic of Ireland,  London and Coventry. The delegates were a rare mix of subject specialists, learning developers, writing developers, Careers Advisors, librarians and English Language Centre staff. Eight presenters led twelve sessions, spearheading strong writing and communication practice in STEM disciplines.
Following the Conference, the project team looked into:

1. Setting up a Special Interest Group on STEM Writing
2. Publishing a special Conference-themed edition in a peer-reviewed journal.

Most of the presentations and their accompanying audio commentary are on the Conference Presentations page.
