2013 Teaching with Writing Course Development Workshop
May 20-24, 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
How would you like to have that new prep for fall 2013 completely planned out before the end of May? If you are planning to use writing in a new course or a revision of a course, apply to participate in this year’s Teaching with Writing Course Development Workshop. The workshop provides an opportunity to work on course development with the input of colleagues from across campus. Along the way you’ll learn about best practices for teaching with writing, including ways to use writing to promote learning and ways to teach students the writing conventions of their disciplines.
Sponsored by the Office of Instructional Development and Writing Across the Curriculum, Teaching with Writing is a five-day workshop that takes place annually in late May. Each day, the group meets in the morning for four hours of collaborative activities and discussion. In the afternoon, participants read assigned texts and draft course materials. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a final version of the syllabus and assignment handouts for one course. They will also have a plan for coaching and evaluating the assignments.
The workshop is open to all UND faculty planning to incorporate writing in a new course or a revision of an existing course. Writing can be used in the course in a variety of ways—from quick, in-class journal entries to dissertation proposals and everything in between. Any course can qualify if the instructor plans to use writing as a learning tool, a learning outcome, or an assessment tool.
The workshop will take place May 20-24 from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm on campus. Participants receive a $500 stipend (subject to standard deductions) and workshop materials.
The workshop is limited to 12 participants. Applications are reviewed as they are received, so it is advantageous to apply early. The application deadline is April 30.
