Effectively Using In-Class Writing
Wednesday, July 7, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Presenters: Jennifer Larson (Dept. of English and Comparative Literature) and Courtney Rivard (Dept. of English and Comparative Literature)
Writing is a critical form of communication in almost every discipline which is why many instructors require students to demonstrate their content mastery and critical thinking skills through writing. But how do you get students to engage in meaningful writing activities during class time throughout the course of the semester? If writing is a critical component of your teaching and assessment practices, or if you are interested in incorporating more writing into your class, then this is the workshop for you.
With the support of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Summer School, UNC’s Summer Institute on College Teaching is running a professional development workshop series this summer for any faculty, postdocs, and graduate students who are interested in learning about the best practices for bringing active learning to their classrooms. Participants in the workshop series will learn how to foster diverse and inclusive classrooms, optimally implement active learning techniques, assess their instruction, and design learning goals and effectively use class time to help students achieve those goals. Attendees of all 8 workshops will earn a certificate as an Education Fellow.
