10th Anniversary in 2022 of the Schreibwerkstatt Deutsch and the Writing Center English

News article by University Communications:
10 years bilingual Writing Center at the University of Stuttgart

Excerpt: "For ten years now, the Writing Center has offered innovative teaching and learning formats designed to help students, doctoral candidates, and other members of the university community improve their academic writing skills and become confident and successful writers." 


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.
