Composition and TESOL student Ahmed Alnasser’s poster on “EFL Saudi Students’ Preferences for Different Writing Styles” won the Graduate Student Assembly Peers Choice Award at the 2015 IUP Graduate Scholars Forum.
As part of his work for Lilia Savova’s Cross-Cultural Communication course, Alnasser researched Saudi students’ preferences for different types of writing styles. The purpose of his research project was to find ways in which Saudi students could improve their writing competencies through the application of preferred as well as culturally appropriate writing styles. He plans to apply the results of his study in his future teaching.
