Do you teach a course on writing in your discipline, or a course in your discipline that meets the General Education Communications/Writing goal, or any course with a significant writing instruction component?
Would you like a supported opportunity to refine your syllabus and writing assignments with a focus on teaching disciplinary thinking?
Could you use some tips and resources to help you to respond effectively to student writing?
If so, please join us in June for a two-day intensive workshop on teaching writing within specific disciplines, sponsored by the Faculty Center for Professional Excellence and the Writing Center. Workshop attendees will receive a $500 stipend for their participation. The workshop time will be divided between pedagogical theory and practice. Participants will revise syllabi and assignments to better teach disciplinary thinking through writing exercises and drafting. We will also explore ways respond effectively to student writing, based on best practices from the field of Composition and Rhetoric.
Who: All Adelphi faculty and instructors, full or part time, who teach courses with a heavy writing instructional component.
Time: June 14 and 15, 9:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Workshop Facilitators: Michael Matto. PhD, English Dept, Coordinator of University-Wide Writing
Belle Gironda, PhD, Instructional Designer, Faculty Center for Professional Excellence
Participants who complete the full workshop will receive a $500 stipend.
Before the workshop, participants will be asked to read some foundational materials for later discussion. These materials will be made available to participants.
After the workshop, participants are asked to “give back” by participating in the running of a future workshop, or offering themselves as a resource within their own department, or writing sample assignments or syllabi for the FCPE collection of pedagogical materials.
