Genres across the disciplines: student writing in higher education
Simpson, Adam John (2013) Genres across the disciplines: student writing in higher education. [Book Review]
A groundbreaking title in the field of higher education writing, uncovering norms and conventions across the whole spectrum of tertiary education written work. Why do university students write? What are they expected to write? To what extent do academics understand the process of setting a writing assignment, and – significantly – how proficient are they in creating appropriate prompts to elicit the kind of writing they expect? On first reading, none of these questions seem that demanding, nor might you expect them to have interesting answers. Nevertheless, it is precisely with such issues that Genres across the Disciplines concerns itself.
