Topical workshops

The University Writing Program, often teamed with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning provides workshops for faculty in all disciplines with a special focus on teachers of WI courses. Grounded in current writing theory and research, each workshop serves as a forum for faculty to swap ideas, learn new strategies, and hone teaching practices. Recent workshops have dealt with a range of topics from assignment and syllabus design to assessing student writing and integrating peer review. All faculty are encouraged to attend and to suggest workshop topics. Click here for more information.

Department and program workshops

In addition to topical workshops, the Writing Program will work directly with departments or programs to tailor faculty workshops in context. These have ranged from an overview of the Writing Intensive Guidelines to building critical thinking with writing. Contact the Director of the Writing Program for details or to request a workshop.

One-on-one consultations

Writing Program representatives are available for individual consultation with faculty. Such consultations may address a range of instructor concerns, such as: course and assigment design, drafting and revision, incorporating meaningful feedback, the uses of writing, and time and workload management. Contact the Associate Director of the University Writing Programs.
