Title: Rethinking academic writing pedagogy for the European university
Written By: Ruth Breeze
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=USLC+23
Series Title: Utrecht Studies in Language and Communication vol. 23
Description:

All over Europe, universities are moving over to English as the language of
instruction. This development has been accelerated by global forces, and its
pedagogical consequences have yet to be fully explored. This book examines
this situation from the point of view of students and teachers, focusing
particularly on the acquisition of English language writing skills in European
university contexts. It takes an academic approach, and is firmly grounded in
the bibliography on teaching academic writing to second language users in
English-speaking countries, as well as in the bibliography on teaching English
in Europe in higher education. In addition to providing sound pedagogical
guidelines, it also brings together the most recent critiques of current practice
and an overview of the innovative approaches devised in the last ten years.
This is a book for all those who are involved in the changing European
university scenario: English teachers and writing instructors, lecturers faced
with the challenge of teaching their courses in English, university
administrators and decision-makers.

Ruth Breeze is Director of the Institute of Modern Languages at the
University of Navarra, Spain. She graduated in Modern and Medieval
Languages at the University of Cambridge and subsequently completed an
MA and Ph.D. in Language Education. Her most recent publications focus on
discourse analysis, language pedagogy, and professional communication.
She is currently a member of the GradUN research group within the 'Instituto
Cultura y Sociedad' at the University of Navarra.
