Call for Contributions to an Edited Volume
We are delighted to invite you to contribute a chapter to an upcoming edited volume on English writing programs, such as academic writing courses, communication skills courses, critical thinking and communication courses, English composition courses, writing in the discipline (WiD), writing across the curriculum (WAC), etc. A commissioning editor at Routledge, Katie Peace, has expressed great interest in this volume.
English Language and Communication Classes in Higher Education: Designs, Methods, Challenges, Evaluations and Outcomes
Editors: Dr Rosmawati (Assistant Professor, Singapore Institute of Technology) Dr Marjolijn Verspoor (Professor Em., University of Groningen)
This edited book will bring together a collection of chapters that showcase these language/communication courses in tertiary education institutions, with clear descriptions of the theoretical and practical considerations underpinning them. The aim is to enable replication and/or adaptation where need be. The intended target audience includes university teachers, coordinators, and especially practitioners and teaching teams of such courses.
To make the book coherent, we envision inclusion of the following parts in each chapter:
Contextualisation of the course, including the goal(s) of the program, the stakeholders
Theories and practices that have informed the program
Implementation of the course (including details such as the profiles of students and the instructors, profiles of the course, etc.)
Evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the course (e.g., what do students say; what do instructors say about the workload, etc.)
If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please prepare a title and an abstract (of 500-600 words, not counting references) in a single file (in WORD or PDF format) and send it to Dr. Rosmawati (email@example.com) by 12 Sept 2022.
