Winter 2018 Writing @ Bates Workshops for Faculty

 

Integrating ARC with your courses
While almost everyone knows that students can be referred to ARC for tutoring, ARC offers so much more. Did you know that you have a say in who the tutor is for your course? Did you know that ARC can train your TA in peer-led learning? Did you know you can hold office hours at ARC or send your students to do group work there? Did you know that ARC tutors can visit your class to talk about study habits? This session will explore the many ways that you might consider integrating ARC with your course.

Implicit Bias and the Grading of Student Writing
Writing, and the assessing of writing, can get messy. Our reactions to any given piece of writing can be extremely personal and idiosyncratic, and often depend critically on our own educational and literary background. More troublingly, our own unconscious assumptions and attitudes about language and writing may show up in our assessment of student of writing. This workshop explores strategies for avoiding an effect from implicit bias on our grading.
