Title: A realist approach to writing: developing a theoretical model of written composition to inform a computer mediated learning application
Authors: Pratt, Deirdre Denise
Keywords: Writing;Written composition;Computer mediated learning
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: An in-depth investigation into the nature of composing was carried out to provide the theoretical basis for a computer mediated learning application, an interactive writing tutor computer program which might be customised by users to fit different educational contexts. The investigation was carried out within a critical realist perspective, from which viewpoint composing can be seen to have an external reality in common with other social phenomena. The intended outcome was to arrive at a description of writing which more closely approximated the reality so as to design more effective learning interactions, in particular, the writing tutor program itself
