Incorporating student writing into a course can be an effective way to engage students in science concepts and to enhance students’ critical-thinking skills. In this advanced-level workshop, participants will discuss best practices for incorporating formal and informal writing into a STEM course. Topics will include key components of an effective, transparent writing assignment, as well as specific strategies for designing informal writing assignments that can be incorporated as active-learning activities.
This is an elective workshop for the WU-CIRTL program.
Presenter: Gina Frey, Ph.D.
This workshop is open to Washington University graduate students beyond their first year and postdoctoral appointees in STEM, and is part of the STEM Pedagogies series. Registration for this workshop will open on March 15.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend introductory-level Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by participation in TA-Training workshops.
