Bridging the Gap between Theory and Practice, CELT Conference

Workshop coordinator (with Angelika Rieder-Bünemann): Joining the academic discourse community – what and how university students of English are expected to write

Abstract

University students of English have to learn how to produce texts associated with various academic genres on their way to becoming members of an ‘academic discourse community’. This workshop will focus on the different text types students of English are expected to produce as part of their university education (e.g. essays, seminar papers). After giving an overview of the typical characteristics of relevant academic genres, we will illustrate selected aspects using practical activities and discuss the relation of these genres to those students acquire at school.
