AALL Symposium:
Theoretical frameworks informing in-discipline language development: transforming perceptions and practice

Friday, 15th July 2016 @ University of Wollongong

Hosted by UOW and UTS, this symposium brought together AALL educators and researchers to share and discuss the various theoretical frameworks that inform and guide practices in integrating English Language education across the curriculum.

Featuring Dr Jim Donohue and Julian Ingle from Thinking Writing at Queen Mary University of London, the program included speakers with expertise in developing and implementing specific theoretical frameworks informing academic writing development within their institutions.

The Symposium was free and open to anyone with a specific interest in developing and applying an evidence-based theoretically informed approach to in-discipline collaborations integrating English Language education into the curriculum.
