The complete program for Symposium 2016: Supporting L2 Writing at German-Language Universities, hosted by the Language Center of the Technische Universität München on April 7 and 8, 2016, has been published at http://www.tum.de/writing-symposium-2016
This year our conference includes a fantastic lineup of workshops and presentations by educators, academics, and professionals from universities and institutions around the world. We’ll discuss writing and teaching writing in English and German from multifaceted perspectives, such as new technological approaches, peer feedback, special requirements for working with scientific writers, internationalization and the lingua franca, bridging the L1/L2 divide, and many others.
The two keynote speakers are: Dr. Leslie Sage, Senior Editor of Physical Sciences at Nature; and Prof. Dr. Christian Fandrych, director of the Herder Institute at the University of Leipzig. Their presentations, along with the Writing Summit panel discussion, will tackle the question “What is good writing?” from a variety of scientific, academic, and professional viewpoints.
