The Norwegian Centre for Writing Education and Research (The Writing Centre) is a national resource centre dedicated to stimulating writing, writing education and writing research.
Our main target groups are teachers, school leaders, school owners, and kindergarten teaching personnel. We assist teacher education at universities and university-colleges in the areas of school development and teacher learning in writing education.
The Writing Centre shall contribute to
- increase the quality of writing instruction and thereby increase the competence in writing as a basic skill
- stimulate writing and the joy of writing in kindergarten, primary school and high school
- strengthen language work in kindergartens
- provide schools and kindergartens with assistance in the development of professional communities
Our Vision: Writing for Learning and Participation.
