2021 Contemporary Teaching in the Liberal Arts: Designing Engaging Writing Assignments

This workshop, led by Catharine Wright, Associate Professor of Writing and Rhetoric and Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies will focus on writing assignments that delve into big ideas, that invite students to explore new genres, and/or that help students develop specific skills. We will also discuss ways to design and scaffold assignments to support student success. Faculty colleagues Dan Suarez (ENVS), Hemangini Gupta, (GSFS), Spring Ulmer (ENAM) and Hector Vila (WRPR), will each briefly showcase an assignment, providing course context. We will consider how students might transfer what they have learned to other contexts. Feel free to bring an assignment to discuss with the group!
