Teaching through Writing workshop taking registrations now

Are you looking an opportunity to update your writing assignments?

Writing across the Curriculum (WAC) staff know that instructors are often negotiating time and various responsibilities throughout the semester. This three-hour-a-week commitment (divided between asynchronous individual work, a one-hour synchronous collaboration with the WAC team and fellow participants, and an optional half hour of workshop time--over four sessions) affords you several opportunities to:

  • (Re)design an inclusive writing assignment and assessment plan
  • Engage with instructors of writing from across the disciplines
  • Explore pedagogical approaches concerning transparency, inclusivity, and access
  • Receive and provide feedback at various stages of the drafting process

Join “Teaching through Writing” and you’ll walk away with a new or redesigned assignment, new connections with colleagues, and an endorsement from the Drake Institute for Teaching and Learning to put on your CV. Eligible faculty can also use this endorsement as a pathway for the Institute's Instructional Redesign initiative.

The seminar will run the weeks of Oct. 19 through Nov. 16, including asynchronous resources and tasks the WAC team will share with participants to do before synchronous Zoom meetings on those Tuesdays (Oct. 19, Oct. 26, Nov. 2 and Nov. 16) from 1 to 2 p.m., when you will have an opportunity to work with other participating colleagues to share ideas and offer feedback. Furthermore, if you are interested and available to stay for another half-an-hour from 2 to 2:30 p.m., you can take advantage of additional workshop time.
