iWrite is an initiative of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies to support English academic writing in engineering. iWrite has been jointly developed by the Learning and Affect Technologies Engineering (LATTE) research group and the Learning Centre, University of Sydney and the Faculty of Engineering and Learning Centre, University of New South Wales. The development of iWrite has been supported by an Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) grant.
We are working towards improving support for the learning of writing skills through a combination of
- Tutorials: Online content with activities and explanations of good writing strategies in the types of genres that our students normally engage with.
- Further Learning: Face to face activities such as workshops that students can take in the Learning Centre or that can be included as part of a UoS.
- For Lecturers: Content for lecturers that can be included as part of a UoS.
