Have you moved away from using formal academic writing in your teaching? Maybe your students make artists’ books, write blogs, design posters, film videos or express themselves in sculpture, to name but a few examples? In other words, are they using a non-traditional genre or transforming academic content from one genre into another (reGenring)? Moreover, are you ‘reGenring’ your assessments?

Have you moved away from using formal academic writing in your teaching and assessment? Maybe your students make artists’ books, write blogs, design posters, film videos or express themselves in poetry or sculpture, to name but a few examples? In other words, are they using a non-traditional genre or transforming academic content from one genre into another (reGenring)? Moreover, are you ‘reGenring’ your assessments?


ReGenring was the theme of the conference on June 21st, 2017 hosted by The Trent Institute for Teaching and Learning (TILT) at NTU in collaboration with Writing-PAD UK. Here, we explored genre as pedagogical resource, the inclusive potential of reGenring for university studies and celebrated current practice in reGenring. Led by Lisa Clughen (NTU) and Alke Gröppel-Wegener (Writing-PAD), it featured talks by invited speakers in the morning, and the afternoon was dedicated to discussion and practice-sharing.


After the conference, we are putting together a special issue of the Journal of Writing in Creative Practice, guest edited by Dr Fiona English and Dr Alke Gröppel-Wegener. If you are playing with genre in your teaching or assessment practice (in any discipline) and you want to share some of this with us, please email Alke at tactileacademia[at]gmail[dot]com with a brief description of your work.
