The Pleasures of Writing?

How could we re-envision aspects of our courses to help promote writerly pleasures across multiple writing contexts and genres?

Tuesday, May 9, 2017
12:30pm-2:00pm
DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library
Intended Audience(s): Faculty, Staff
Categories: Workshops & Training
Registration required.

Leaders: Doyin Ogunfeyimi, Megan McIntyre

What is it that we do in the classroom, in assignment sequences, and in workshops that might work against student pleasure—curiosity, interest, gratification, investment, affect, etc.—in the writing classroom? And how could we re-envision aspects of our courses to help promote writerly pleasures across multiple writing contexts and genres? This workshop will draw on the Institute’s data to discuss how students construct their writerly pleasures and to suggest how we can repurpose these pleasurable writing experiences to foster engaged and purposive classroom environments. Lunch will be served.
