As part of my CLeaR Fellowship 2020 (University of Auckland) and with the generous support of a SEED grant, I designed an Academic Writing Learning Framework with a decolonial perspective that might be an invitation to rethink some university assumptions and expectations that can be reproducing social inequities. My strong belief in all students’ right to academic success, led me to design this Academic Writing Learning Framework from a critical reﬂective perspective and a sociocultural view.
As university students build and develop their disciplinary knowledge, a signiﬁcant part of their university work and assessment is done through their academic writing. Still, the overall expectations regard-ing writing assignments, and even research writing, often seem to be elusive for students. Furthermore, for some students English academic writing may actually become a language barrier.
