COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

Writing Pedagogy 

Learning Community

The Writing Pedagogy Learning Community provides instructors with training in effective writing  instruction. Participants will explore research-based best practices for designing writing assignments and activities to promote learning in their classes. Additional takeaways include  strategies for responding to student writing, tactics for facilitating writing workshops, and a “teaching writing” tool kit. This learning community draws from the Writing-Across-the-Curriculum / Writing-in-the-Disciplines (WAC/WID) movement in higher education.

Activities and discussions are built around  John Bean’s Engaging Ideas: The Professor’s Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom

ELIGIBILITY

The Writing Pedagogy LC is open to all faculty and graduate students. Full-time faculty who participate will be eligible to develop a course for possible inclusion in the new LAC’s upper-division written communication option (CO-3). Priority will be given to faculty proposing an Area CO-3 course for the LAC.

REQUIREMENTS

Participants are asked to attend all meetings and participate in ongoing evaluation. This learning community meets twice each month from February - April.

COMPENSATION

CETL will provide each participant with a person copy of the book Engaging Ideas: The Professor's Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom
