Designing Writing Assignments: Get the Writing You Want to Read

Oct 7, 2019
9:30 am to 10:45 am
302 Howe Memorial Library

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 problem-solving with existing assignments, this workshop will open up possibilities for you.
