Intended Audience(s): Faculty
Categories: Workshops & Training
Registration required.

We hope that our first-year writing courses help students develop core writing abilities that they can use and adapt in new contexts. But we generally teach these abilities from the context of our own personal discipline. If that influence stays tacit, students may not understand how writing in different courses can be related. In this workshop, which grows out of other discussions we’ve had, we will explore what our first-year writing learning objectives mean to us personally, how the outcomes from each of the first-year courses suggest both differences and shared goals, and how this knowledge can inform our teaching. We will present some teaching strategies for promoting students’ multidisciplinary adaptability across courses. Lunch will be served.
