NUI Maynooth Summer Writing Institute For Teachers (SWIFT) 2017 (announced March 2017)

The National University of Ireland, Maynooth, will facilitate a Summer Writing Institute For Teachers (SWIFT) in July 2017. This offering builds on previous institutes, held in 2014, 2015 and 2016, which were originally designed in consultation with a range of teaching and learning networks, including Maynooth University Early Childhood, the Further Education Support Service, the Reading Association of Ireland (now Literacy Association of Ireland) and the Irish Network for the Enhancement of Writing.  

The institute draws from the US National Writing Project model and is designed to provide an opportunity for teachers, from all education levels, to meet, share good practice, and learn more about writing and the teaching of writing. At the institute you will look closely at your own writing and student writing, explore issues and ideas in the teaching of writing, work toward becoming teacher leaders and share classroom practices or activities. 

The institute will take place in Maynooth University from 10.00 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. from Monday 3rd July until Friday 7th July inclusive

The institute is free to all participants but places will be strictly limited and allocated across the education levels. All applications and queries must be made by email to writingcentre@nuim.ie. All shortlisted applicants will be contacted by Friday 12th May 2017.
