ACADEMIC-SCIENTIFIC LITERACIES: THE TEACHING OF WRITING AT THE FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY – PARANÁ
Keywords:Academic literacies, Scientific literacies, Academic writing at university
This study is part of the Academic Literacy Project (2019-2022), a collaborative study carried out among four public universities in the State of Paraná. This paper aims at describing the academic-scientific literacy actions in the undergraduate courses of the Federal University of Technology – Paraná, by means of mapping the courses transcripts from Campus Curitiba. A mixed sequential exploratory method (TASHAKKORI; CRESWELL, 2007) was applied with interpretative, deductive, and inductive analysis procedures, considering the peculiarities of each course. At first, we built an inventory with keywords based on the conceptions of professional, academic, and scientific literacies. Next, an analysis of the content from the transcripts was carried out in the light of the theories and models of Academic Literacies (LEA; STREET, 1998; FIAD, 2011), named study skills, academic socialization, and academic literacies. Results indicate that there are few disciplines which offer the teaching of genre and, among the ones that do, focus on teaching of the study skills and academic socialization models.
