Designing Writing Assignments: Get the Writing You Want to Read

Wednesday, November 01 2017
@ 9:30 AM- 10:30 AM
How do assignments (dis)encourage students to work? This workshop will present research findings on writing and engagement, and then look at strategies for shaping assignments that get students working in ways you value. This interactive workshop will allow time for participants to apply these strategies to their own courses—whether you’re considering developing a new assignment, or whether you’re problem-solving with existing assignments, this workshop should open up possibilities for you.
