August 6 Worshop: Helping our writing students to be more self-determined.
Join us this summer for a six-week workshop series on writing assignment design and refinement. Our goal over these six weeks is to produce a ready-to-implement assignment plan, including an assessment plan and grading rubric. Toward that end, we’ll explore topics related to defining learning objectives; scaffolding students’ learning and achievement; keeping students engaged; teaching writing as well as using writing to support other engineering learning; and assessment techniques that will help students to learn. We will also survey a variety of different kinds of writing assignments over the weeks, to build a foundation for assignment design.
Please plan to attend all or most workshops to get the most of this series. Email us for more information.
