Writing in the Disciplines Spring 2018 Workshops

What's expected in a course coded as W (writing intensive)? How can you meet those expectations in your course? This session explores a variety of approaches to teaching a writing-intensive course-from multiple, smaller writing tasks to semester-long research projects. Topics include choosing writing assignments that fit the course structure, helping students learn about writing in your discipline, using peer feedback, deciding whether to assign multiple drafts, balancing course content and attention to writing. Presenter: Cary Moskovitz.
Lunch provided. Capped at 12 participants. 12:15-1:30, Soc/Psych 331(West Campus)
