Winter 2019 Writing @ Bates Programming for Faculty and Staff


Public Writing and Civic Discourse Learning Community: In this learning community, we explore the possibilities and challenges that arise when students write for public audiences outside of class and studies the opportunities for teaching civic discourse in these times.  We read and discuss research in this area, explore the Calderwood Seminar model, and together create opportunities for more public writing here at Bates.  Contact Stephanie Wade for more information.

Faculty Writing Learning Community: Faculty meet bi-weekly to work on their own writing projects.  Contact Stephanie Wade for more information.
