    AT Program: Designing Writing Assignments and Commenting on Student Work

    In this workshop, we will explore the life cycle of an assignment - from its design to assessment. Through hands-on activities, we will address these questions: How can we design assignments that align with our course goals? How can scaffolding and low-stakes writing assist students in producing quality work? What forms of response are most effective in helping students improve their writing? Participants should bring a syllabus (or an idea for a course) as well as an assignment (or an idea for an assignment).

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
