Faculty Writing Workshop: Two-Day

Faculty Writing Workshop: Two Day Lesson Plan Workshop

Upon completion of the workshop, the faculty will be able to use teaching techniques that are immediately transferrable to their classrooms. The faculty members who are selected to participate in the workshop attend a full day of instruction about the teaching of writing, and they create their own practical lesson plans that can be used in the classroom. On day two, they present these lessons, during which time they receive feedback from the workshop facilitators and their peers. The complete lessons will be refined and posted online for other instructors to use in their classes.

Faculty members plan their lessons at a faculty writing workshop.We have conducted these faculty writing workshops in spring 2012, fall 2012, spring 2013, fall 2013, and spring 2014. We have been administering surveys for assessment to the faculty participants, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback about the high quality of the workshop with multiple instructors stating that the workshop was so powerful that it changed their instructional techniques.

There will be a new two-day workshop held in August. The first day of the workshop will be August 13 and the second day will be August 15. Download the flier below for more information and for application instructions regarding this workshop.
