World Wide Writing – Tutors around the Globe
The Nijmegen Centre for Academic Writing would like to invite tutors working at writing centres all over the world for an EWCA peer tutor event this summer. Last year, our tutors were very inspired by the exchange with international colleagues at the EWCA Peer Tutor Day in Frankfurt/Oder. Unfortunately, no Peer Tutor Day was planned for this summer, which would mean that many of our tutors would not have the opportunity to meet with other (foreign) peer tutors and exchange ideas. That is why we decided to host the 2015 Peer Tutor Day!
The Peer Tutor Day will take place on Friday July 10th and Saturday July 11th 2015 at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Our goal is to exchange ideas, practices and experiences concerning different aspects of the peer tutor work at a writing centre. Besides workshops and discussions, there will also be time to get to know each other and explore the city of Nijmegen, the oldest city of the Netherlands (a mere 1.5 hour train journey from Amsterdam).
At www.ru.nl/asn/peertutorday you will find more information and a preliminary programme. The final programme will be posted here shortly. Registration for this event will open on May 1st. By that time, we will also provide information on (affordable) accommodation and travel options. If you have any questions before that time, please contact peer tutor Ellen Nieboer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All the best
Joy de Jong (manager)
We hope to welcome you to Nijmegen this summer for this inspirational event!
