Writing Research

At the international Writing Center of the Göttingen University, in addition to courses and advice on writing, there is research. The object of our Research projects are the writing, teaching and learning processes of school, academic and professional texts, as well as their advisory constellation. A special focus is presented by the research of writing in multilingual academic context. With our research we aim at contributing with an empirically-funded knowledge from the praxis of Writing, Teaching, Learning and Writing Process Advising. The results are to be set back in the applied Writing advisory and didactics.
Disciplinarily speaking, we see ourselves as belonging to the applied linguistics, intercultural German Studies, Language teaching and didactics, as well as the didactics of foreign languages, aiming at constructing young area of applied writing didactics.
