Inter-university research seminar on teaching and learning, reading and writing strategies (SINTE-Lest)


The Inter-University Research Seminar on Teaching and Learning, Reading and Writing Strategies studies the conceptions of academic writing in different contexts during secondary and university education, and it researches strategies to improve reading and writing in these two educational stages.
