Call for proposals

Eyes on writing - Discovering creativity across the curriculum

We are now inviting proposals on a range of topics that relate to the Roundtable themes: creative literacy and writing across the curriculum. Proposals can be submitted for two types of sessions: Roundtable Discussion (45 minutes) and Workshop (45 minutes).

Roundtable discussion proposal

Proposals for Roundtable discussion should include at least 4 questions that you want the participants to explore during the session. (Maximum 100 words + a 50-word bio)

What is a roundtable discussion?

Roundtable discussion (as the name suggests), is an opportunity for participants to get together in an informal setting to discuss ideas and issues related to creative and academic writing. Facilitators can introduce their topic briefly, leaving a major part of the session for sharing ideas. The facilitators need to be well versed in their topic and engage group members in discussions and sharing experiences. Questions can be prepared by the facilitators in advance to start the conversations.

Workshop proposal

Proposals for workshop should include practical, hands-on, interactive activities that participants will be able to engage in. For example, designing tasks, developing a plot, learning to use an online resource. (Maximum 100 words + a 50-word bio)
