I am conducting a research project on international writing centers, the International Writing Centers Research Project (IWCRP). Specifically, I am interested in learning about writing centers outside of the United States that use a collaborative model to discuss writing one-on-one.
The IWCRP survey is closed!
Data was collected from May 2015 through March 2016. The survey, which was emailed to 300+ non-US-based writing centers, collected information about international writing centers, its resources, and its place in the university. For more information and preliminary results, please visit the IWCRP website.
I collected a preliminary database of international writing centers by:
- Looking at international writing centers at the IWCA website
- Looking at international writing centers at the Writing Center Directory hosted by WritePlace at St. Cloud State
- Looking at the websites for global regions, such as the European Writing Centers Association, the Writing Centers Association of Japan, and the Middle East – North Africa Writing Centers Alliance
- Searching the internet for “writing centre,” “writing center,” “writing lab,” “learning centre,” and “academic resource” plus country name
- Searching the internet for international writing center programmes
- Searching listervs (like wcenter and EATAW) for international writing center postings
More specific information – and initial results – are available at IWCRP.org.
In the meantime, check out a global map of the number of writing centers in each country.
