|Extended summer writing workshop offered|
The extended (summer) Writing Across the Curriculum faculty workshop will be offered Friday, May 16, and Monday through Friday, May 19-23, from 8:30 a.m. to noon daily; six total sessions. In this workshop, we’ll be using the text "Engaging Ideas: The Professor’s Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom" by John Bean. Participation in this workshop provides an opportunity for faculty at all levels of experience and from all disciplines to consider and reconsider the writing that students do (or could be doing) in their courses. This workshop might be of special interest to faculty who are considering changes to their courses to meet the new Essential Studies Advanced Communication designation.
Participating faculty will receive stipends of $600 (subject to standard deductions). To apply: In no more than a single page, describe the course (e.g., who takes it and why, how many students are expected to enroll, if it’s required for students in particular majors, etc.) and the role writing will play in the new or redeveloped course. If this is an existing course, you might also say something about how and why this is changing. Please apply early; there is space for 10 participants, and qualified applicants will be accepted as applications are received. For more information about this workshop, please contact Kimberly Crowley (777-6381 or firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
