Challenges and Changes: The Development of an English Writing Center in Taiwan (Note 1)

Dayna Epley, Rebecca Day Babcock, Matt Linnenkugel

Abstract


This paper explains the process of a group from a regional public university in Texas, USA attempting a short-term project to start a writing center at a private technical university in Taiwan. The group encountered several challenges and this paper attempts to reflect on and analyze what happened and to assist others who may have similar plans. Writing centers are growing in Asia but may need a different approach than just transplanting a US approach uncritically. Also cultural knowledge is key in endeavoring to re-establish a current concept in a new context.
