Incorporating writing into your teaching & designing effective writing assignments


This workshop is part of the Innovative Teaching with Writing Initiative, presented in collaboration with the  Northeastern University Writing Program.

In this workshop, we’ll articulate and share the learning goals we have for WI courses, determine patterns in those goals across disciplines, and begin to describe activities and assessments for students to achieve those goals. Next, we’ll move from articulated course goals to designing the informal and formal writing tasks that help students achieve those goals. Participants will be presented with examples of writing assignments across the disciplines for analysis and inspiration.

Facilitated by Neal Lerner, English Department faculty member and Director of the Writing Center.
