Abstract

The University of Glasgow’s Academic Writing Skills Programme (AWSP) is a unique example of institution-wide writing development. The course runs across the institution’s c. 12,000 students per academic year as a compulsory course. Student uptake has been beyond expectations, and the programme has been developed and enhanced to incorporate the most up to date practice in academic writing development. This paper will detail the elements of AWSP, and how the use of blended/online technology has enhanced provision. We will discuss the course set-up, challenges and achievements, and building a student-centred range of provision that caters for 12,000 students per academic year. The paper builds on Boyle, Ramsay and Struan (2019).
