Event Type: New Faculty Workshops, Pedagogy & Practice Workshops, Student Learning Outcomes Assessment, TA Services and Programs

This two-hour workshop will provide faculty with resources, strategies, and templates for integrating writing into discipline-specific courses to improve student learning, writing, and engagement. Participants will learn research-based principles for teaching writing in the disciplines and best practices for effectively assigning and assessing writing without overburdening faculty workload. In collaboration with other faculty, participants will have the opportunity to revise existing writing-intensive courses or develop new writing-intensive courses for their programs. Participants will also learn about the Writing Intensive Program, the Writing Fellows Program, and other sources of support for faculty teaching writing in the disciplines. At the end of the session, Franklin College participants should be prepared to submit a course proposal for the Writing Intensive Program 2018-2019, and all participants will leave the workshop with plans for a new or improved writing-intensive course.
