UKLA International Research Symposium: Teaching and Researching Writing

This event took place 10:30am - 4:00pm Friday February 24th, 2012

**FULLY BOOKED** This one day research symposium, collaboratively organised by UKLA and BERA’s Language and Literacy SIG, will be chaired by Ros Ivanic, formerly of the University of Lancaster. It draws together significant scholars from the field of writing to share their recent research and to discuss research, policy and practice issues. The intention of the symposium is to explore cutting edge research in writing across the age phases 3-18 years, to reflect upon the different methodological lenses which the three researchers employ, and to consider the consequences of their work for the teaching and learning of writing. There will be opportunities for discussion and debate and to explore synergies between the projects and the propositions presented. Following the success of last year’s UKLA International Research Symposium, we recommend early booking to secure your place. Speakers: Deborah Wells Rowe, Peabody College, Vanderbilt University: The Affordances of Multimodal Interaction Analysis for Studying the Beginnings of Writing. Cathy Burnett, Sheffield Hallam University: Children Writing on Screen: Negotiating Meanings in Primary Classrooms.  Debra Myhill, University of Exeter: Reconceptualising the Role of Grammar in the Teaching of Writing
