This workshop supplements the FYS Course Development module by focusing on different strategies of teaching writing. This workshop addresses specific writing aspects of the FYS as well as possible models of collaboration with writing instructors. Faculty will have the opportunity to mine their own writing process as a source for a sound writing pedagogy. The workshop will help professor explore writing as a critical act of "thinking on the page." Time saving strategies, multiple modes of student engagement and evaluation, and helpful classroom practices will be the focus of the workshop. This workshop is also suited for instructors who plan to teach a course satisfying a writing flag in different fields. Instructors will leave with a rich set of ideas and exercises as well as some assignments they can incorporate into their classes. Ideally, this module is taken together with the Course Development and Reading modules.

This workshop is a summer course development workshop for new core curriculum courses; grants are available to support course development. This workshop corresponds to one module.

Please direct any questions you may have to teachers@lmu.edu.
