Conference Details : The global dimensions of STEM research have led to the emergence of several related areas of research that aim to enhance STEM education. These areas include text analysis, academic literacy, teaching, learning, innovation and creativity. The teaching and learning of writing and reading represent significant aspects of STEM education and research, since writing is the medium used by STEM researchers and students to communicate their original findings. The conference welcomes contributions that draw on the insights of both reading and writing specialists, and STEM educators and researchers about reading and writing. The conference addresses issues related to writing pedagogies, writing contexts and academic writing in STEM publications. It will provide a platform for presentations and how-to workshops on areas of writing such as writing for scholarly publications in English; collaborative interdisciplinary authorship; writing research reports; developing research arguments; audience engagement; critical thinking and writing; teaching reading and writing to STEM students; and analyzing written text. We also propose a new collaborative work-in-progress workshop format on our call-for-papers page.
