As part of our Action, we hope to contribute to contemporary conversations on writing, research, learning and teaching. We will do this at our meetings and other events. We also hope to do this through publications and other outputs.

Our outputs are closely linked to the grant periods of the Action. Where we have specific outputs to share with the wider community we will list them here under the grant periods. These outputs and/or resources will include: research informed discussion documents; reports on our meetings; outlines, reports and evaluations of our training schools; reflections on STSM experiences.
