Ongoing Faculty Programming
Fall 2019 Writing @ Bates Programming for Faculty and Staff
Writing Assignment Design
This interactive workshop will begin with a review of evidence-based principles of effective writing assignment design: attending to purpose, audience, genre, and other expectations; connecting assignments to course goals; scaffolding assignments to support students’ growth; and designing rubrics. With the guidance of a writing specialist, participants will reflect on and review each other’s assignments. Participants will leave with improved assignments for the fall of 2019, an improved understanding of how to design future assignments, and, perhaps, a stronger sense of community with their colleagues.
Please bring a draft of (or ideas for) a writing assignment, a public speaking assignment, a presentation, or a multimedia project for one of your upcoming classes.
