Alex Grevett’s latest blog post is titled “A different way to approach teaching writing”.
Alex says, “Camp. Possibly for you this word conjures up images of canvas, burnt sausages and trench foot. These days, it brings to mind the five week winter intensive program run by my university, called “winter camp” despite the fact that it would be possible to conduct the whole thing without ever going outside, let alone sleeping there. Nevertheless, it’s often the chance for a change of teaching scenery in that we can teach a specialist subject* for those five weeks. This year I’m teaching a writing course, and in this post I will outline what I’m going to do, and set up the kind of reflections I will be trying to collect and blog about over the next 5 weeks.”
