Keeping Pace with the Times

Our work is based on the interdisciplinary results of writing research and the exchange with our colleagues from other writing centers in German-speaking countries. In the "Gesellschaft für Schreibdidaktik und Schreibforschung" and together with the writing centers of other universities in Baden-Württemberg ("Netzwerk der Schreibzentren in Baden-Württemberg (NWBW)"), we work on current questions of academic literacy.
