Academic Literacy Research and Practice

An interesting presentation from Sophie Bury and Ron Sheese (York University, Canada) is on Undergraduate Students' Writing, Research and Learning Skills: Academic Literacy Research and Practice at York University It gives some brief details of focus groups at with academics in different faculties at York University undertaken in summer 2012, on academic literacies. It then talks about their response to their findings, in terms of course design and specifically a web resource SPARK (Student Papers and Academic Research Kit). SPARK is at and the presentation is at (there are other talks by the same author in this repository).
