Past Conferences

On the 14th and 15th of October, 2021, we held the first joint UFS and UP academic literacy and writing centre conference. The title of the conference was, 'Academic literacy and writing centre practitioners' responses to Covid-19 and the move to online/blended teaching and learning.' The two-day conference was a huge success with many insightful and thought-provoking talks.
