Are you interested in helping students to achieve better writing skills in your courses or across your curriculum? Join Jennifer Forsthoefel (English) and Ben Denkinger (Psychology, Assessment) on Thursday, December 2nd at 9am for a live Zoom presentation and discussion on best practices in writing instruction across disciplines. We will present data from a recent survey of over 100 Augsburg faculty on the kinds of writing they assign and how they assess it. We will also discuss best practices for writing instruction based on recommendations by the International Network of Writing Across the Curriculum Programs and the Council of Writing Program Administrators, among others. We will then evaluate new ways of building upon our students’ developing writing skills in our own disciplines and programs.
