Workshop description

Just how mighty is the pen? In this workshop, we will examine writing as a learning tool in classrooms across campus. In particular, this session offers ideas to instructors who wish to move beyond the term paper, the most common writing assignment in many disciplines, though not necessarily the most effective or efficient. It will also offer practical strategies for instructors who typically do not offer writing activities in their courses, but are intrigued by the potential to implement writing as a learning tool, and consider the theoretical framework behind writing to learn.

Through a combination of interactive group discussions and exercises, we will consider a number of shorter writing activities which can easily be integrated into a variety of classrooms. Be sure to bring a pen to this workshop!
