Posted on 8/2/2013 4:33:52 PM

The Writing Across the Curriculum initiative at IUP will offer two workshops this Fall designed to support faculty in teaching writing to their students in any course at the university.

Creating Effective Writing Assignments

Wednesday, October 2, 10:10–11:00 a.m. or Tuesday, October 8, 2:00–2:50 p.m.

If your students seem to struggle with writing assignments and you want to help them succeed, then come to this workshop. We’ll talk about how to:

  • Craft assignments so you get what you want from your students
  • Help your students better understand your assignments
  • Learn how to prevent plagiarism
  • Create assignments that are interesting for your students to write, and interesting for you to read!

Strategies for Efficiently Grading Student Writing

Wednesday, November 20, 11:15 a.m.–12:05 p.m. or Thursday, November 21, 12:30–1:20 p.m.

If you want to assign more writing but aren’t sure how you’ll have time to grade it, then this workshop is for you. We’ll talk about:

  • • Ungraded writing
  • • Random grading
  • • Rubrics and other types of feedback
  • • Efficient methods of response
