Cross-Campus Perspectives on Teaching Writing-Intensive Courses
- 12:15 PM to 1:30 PM
- Canevin 108
Facilitator: Jim Purdy (DU Writing Center)
Faculty Panelists: Elaine Abbott (Music), Elena Donoso Brown (Health Sciences), Kristin Klucevsek (Liberal Arts), Benjamin Goldschmidt (Bayer), and Sandra Quinones (Education)
Instructors in writing-intensive courses (WICs) often have questions about how to approach writing instruction. At this workshop, participants will learn strategies from panelists across campus who have successfully taught WICs. Panelists include faculty from the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, the Rangos School of Health Sciences, the School of Education, the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts, and the Pappert School of Music. After a review of the current WIC requirements and some general guidance regarding best practices for teaching such courses, panelists will share tips for teaching a WIC in their respective disciplines. They will also share specific assignments that have been effective and discuss how they communicate the value of WICs to their students. Attendees will have time at the end of the session to ask the panelists questions.
