WID Institute

WID Institute for Course and Assignment Design, 2024

Jump start your fall course planning with the support of the WID Institute for Course and Assignment Design!  In this 2-day format, we’ll reflect on your teaching priorities (particularly those connected to writing and information literacy) and outline meaningful assignments that support those priorities. You’ll connect with colleagues, build in support for your students and yourself, and end up with smart, sustainable course outlines, assignment plans, and syllabus revisions. We hope you’ll also leave feeling refreshed and inspired, with important work completed. During Fall 2024, you will follow up with supportive connections with WID and your fellow Institute participants. While working on a WIL1 or WIL2 course isn't required for Institute participation, we will pay special attention to the new Catamount Core and will have activities that support those developing general education courses. 

Coffee, tea, and lunch will be provided. Additional benefits are listed below.

This year, the WID Institute will be facilitated by Susanmarie Harrington, Director of the Writing in the Disciplines Program; Daisy Benson, Library Associate Professor; and Ingrid Nelson, Associate Professor of Geography & WID Faculty Associate.
