Writing Assignment Autopsy

Did your last writing assignment flop? Have you just stopped giving writing assignments altogether? Attend the writing assignment audit from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 13 in the CoLab. This workshop will focus on helping you create assignments that maximize the benefits for your students while streamlining the process for you. Presenters will offer tips on how to create writing assignments that work, as well as conduct “autopsies” to analyze participants’ own writing assignments. All disciplines are welcome! Please bring an example of a writing assignment (or one that you’re developing) from your course. Contact Farrell Hoy Jenab if you have questions.
