Bente Kristiansen ved Centre for Educational Development, Aarhus universitet, arbeider med akademisk kommunikasjon og særlig akademiske kyndighet, "academic literacy".
Akademisk literacy handler om kompetansen til å kommunisere i et bestemt akademisk diskurs-felleskap. Det er først og fremst noe studentene utvikler i fagene, heller enn generisk ferdighet som man lærer i egne kurs. Vi diskuterer hvordan man i høyere utdanning kan støtte studentenes utvikling av akademisk kyndighet, særlig skriving og lesning.
Kristiansen har bl.a. forfattet boken Om at skrive på Universitetet, som akkurat har kommet i ny utgave.
