SIGN UP - Taking a closer look at students’ access to disciplinary discourses: Implications for academics’ teaching and assessment practices
This seminar attempts to stimulate discussions around matters pertaining to academic literacies and disciplinary discourses, and what these mean for our teaching and assessment practices. In this seminar, Bongi draws on findings from two longitudinal studies on undergraduate students’ experiences as they attempt to become legitimate members of their academic disciplines. Drawing on an Academic Literacies framework, she discusses some of the challenges experienced by these students as they navigate several transitions (from high school to first year, first year to second and third year) and disciplinary discourses. As part of this seminar, participants will discuss ways in which their teaching and assessment practices can respond to students' challenges with disciplinary discourses.
