The teaching of writing is an important area of study. Whether as a supplementary or a required course offered in a university or other higher education English department, an English language centre, or a private language school, writing at university level is a critical area of study and competence for all students pursuing academic studies.

Creativity and Discovery in the University Writing Class: A Teacher’s Guide presents ideas for teaching writing at university level which recognize the need in the current world to be continually innovating in response to rapidly changing student populations and conditions, including advances in media and writing technologies. The volume emphasizes the creativity of all forms of writing and the important role of discovery in teaching, learning, and the acquisition of knowledge of all kinds.

The volume brings together distinguished scholars in writing pedagogy from different educational and cultural contexts who took part in a Summer Institute on Creativity and Discovery in the Teaching of Writing at City University of Hong Kong in June 2013. Designed for teachers of writing based on lectures and workshops given at the summer institute, the collection offers both theoretical insights and practical suggestions for classroom activities that teachers of writing will be able to go to for materials and guidance.
