Monday, February 4, 2013
2:00 p.m., Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center

Presented by Susan Adams Delaney, Assistant Professor, Department of Writing

Faculty should bring one or more current writing assignments they’re using so that we can work together to understand the goals of the assignment, how it fits within current learning objectives, and how it responds to particular disciplinary or departmental needs. The goal of this workshop is to have faculty understand just how much expectations of student writing vary and to assess what’s working—or not—the way assignments are currently structured. This is also an opportunity to introduce faculty to various resources that can help them improve these assignments, such as John Bean’s book Engaging Writing and various websites (such as the OWL and the Colorado Writing Guides). Faculty will do reflective writing and leave with a clear working plan for improving the assignments they brought with them.
