Do you want to assign writing in your course, but feel unsure about what types of assignments will best serve your students? Are you uneasy about responding to student writing in a meaningful and constructive way? In this workshop, you will learn approaches for developing discipline-specific writing assignments that challenge students to think critically, creatively engage with problems, and develop writing processes specific to their major area and profession. You will also learn strategies for responding to more than just surface-level concerns like grammar. This will be a hands-on workshop, so if you already have writing assignment prompts or rubrics, bring them along! The facilitator is Dr. Brian Stone.
