Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Beat the January blues! Start the New Year right by building more writing into your courses with the Writing Center's four-day Winter Institute on Teaching with Writing. In this supportive, collaborative, virtual setting, faculty and graduate student participants will work on assignment design, multimodal writing projects, responding to writing, and evaluating student work. 

This series of four workshops will be held via Zoom from 10:00 am -12:00 pm on January 12th, 14th, 19th, and 21th, 2021.Participants are required to attend all four days. Open to all interested faculty and graduate student instructors, but the workshops are primarily designed for those teaching content-oriented courses (i.e. courses in the social sciences, history, art, philosophy, and the natural sciences) rather than writing-focused courses.
