Ineffective writing prompts can lead to ineffective student writing. Participants in this workshop will discuss strategies for writing clear, well-crafted writing assignments and essay prompts that can deepen student learning and help students shape their writing for specific audiences and purposes. With a focus on the process of writing and refining assignments, participants will work together to revise sample assignments for clarity and alignment with learning goals.
This workshop is part of a two-session series offered this semester on Teaching with Writing. Attendance at both sessions is not required.
Registration is required, and seating is limited.
Presenters: Michelle Repice, Ph.D., Assistant Director, The Teaching Center and Beth Fisher, Ph.D., Director of Academic Services, The Teaching Center
This workshop is part of the Pedagogies in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Workshop Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate Student Senate.
Participation in this workshop series partially satisfies the advanced-level training requirement for the Teaching Citation program and the Preparation in Pedagogy (PiP) program.
Participating in advanced-level workshops for graduate students does not satisfy departmental requirements to attend Teaching Center workshops. The departmental requirements are satisfied by attendance at a specified number of introductory-level TA-Training workshops.
