Integrating Communication Instruction in CI Subjects: A Writing Across the Curriculum IAP Workshop

Monday, January 28, 2013 - Thursday, January 31, 2013

Enrollment: Limited: First come, first served (no advance sign-up)

Instructors of CI subjects often ask how they can more effectively connect writing and speaking instruction with the course content, so that communication assignments are not just additional requirements, but instead help students more deeply engage with the concepts of the course. How can we design instructional and assignment sequences that are organic to each subject, and that help students approach writing and speaking as the space for developing conceptual thinking? Working with some examples from CI-M and CI-H classes, we’ll explore how instructors can break down assignments to demystify research, writing, and presentation in their fields. Improved sequencing will help students experience a more productive writing experience.

Bring examples of assignments from your classes to share.

All WAC workshops are open to faculty and teaching assistants who are interested in integrating writing and speaking into their subjects.
