The conference for Academic Writing and English Language Learners (AWELL) is a two-day conference designed for faculty, language instructors, composition instructors, and writing centre professionals who teach and tutor ELL students. The goal of the conference is to provide tools and approaches in a workshop format that may be used directly in classrooms and tutoring sessions.
We want to provide an open forum to all those interested in any area of additional language studies and academic writing, including digital writing pedagogies, multiliteracies, plurilingualism, and intercultural writing supports. Questions for consideration may include, but are not limited to:
Pedagogy and practice for multilingual classrooms
ELL pedagogy relating to globalized students
Learning community writing practice
Technology in writing practice relating to ELLs
Multimodal and digital approaches to ELL writing instruction and practice
Considerations of general teaching and learning practice to ELLs
