Abstract

In this contribution we outline and discuss the work of Thinking Writing at Queen Mary, University of London. Thinking Writing seeks, through a focus on writing, to facilitate professional development and enhanced teaching, assessment and curriculum design. We describe how the initiative has developed over a 10-year period, the range of activities it now encompasses, and the theoretical orientations and resources from which it draws. To explain the negotiated way in which the Thinking Writing team typically works, we give an account of our involvement with processes of change in a single department of the university. We note that our approach does not assume particular models of writing nor measure success in terms of the “written product”; and we consider the potential future impact on our work of new strategic initiatives that articulate “writing” as an explicit goal.
