Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted.
Writing is thinking on paper.
When writing about science, don't simplify the science; simplify the writing.
Writing is a lot easier if you have something to say.
Good writing is clear thinking made visible.
A man who is ignorant of foreign languages is also ignorant of his own language.
Only the educated are free.
One`s work may be finished someday, but one`s education never.
What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
Writing Programs in Russia spark international interest
Valeria Evdash took part in the online panel presentation at the University of Denver Regional Conference “Research(ing) Writing Cultures: CLASSROOM, PROGRAM, PROFESSION, PUBLIC” on July 20 2018. The representatives from four Russian educational establishments shared their experiences of running academic writing programs for students and scholars.
The participants of the panel presentation:
Irina Korotkina, Moscow School of Social and Economic Sciences
Natalia Gunina, Tambov State University
Ashley Squires, New Economic School (Moscow).
Actually, the conference discussion was a bit challenging taking into account the online meeting via Zoom, an online video conferencing service, and nighttime that was from 00.30 to 01.30 (Tyumen time). Nowadays technology is really beneficial in allowing enthusiasts to communicate despite the distance and time.
The Russian speakers got extremely positive feedback from the conference attendees.
Many thanks to Daniel Singer ( MEd, PhD, Assistant Professor, Teaching Series University of Denver, University Writing Programs) for inviting to participate in this exciting event!
