Ken Hyland, a widely published and highly experienced teacher of both Applied Linguistics and EFL, brings together the latest research and teaching practices in the field of writing in this highly readable, wide-ranging volume.

In addition to a full discussion of the current applications of research in terms of courses, materials, teaching practices and software,
Teaching and Researching: Writing offers practical suggestions for teaching approaches. The practical nature of the volume also extends to research projects with a dedicated chapter setting out a number of do-able, small scale research topics.

- key texts listings after each section
- discussions of case studies
- compendium of paper and online resources
