WAC seminar supports design or redesign of writing assignments

Writing Across the Curriculum organizers know that instructors are often negotiating time and various responsibilities throughout the semester. For that reason, this summer a three-hour a week commitment over four sessions helps them sculpt out the time to work on writing assignments specifically. 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, this seminar allows for the following: 

  • (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 us for this WAC seminar, “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 part of the Instructional Redesign component of the Drake Institute’s Teaching Support Initiatives. 

The seminar will run the weeks of July 11 through Aug. 1, including asynchronous resources and tasks the WAC team will share with participants to do before synchronous Zoom meetings on those Fridays (July 15, July 22, July 29, and August 5) from 10-11 a.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 11-11:30 a.m., you can take advantage of additional workshop time.
