ENHANCING LEARNING--AND TEACHING--WITH WRITING
Writing in college takes various forms--from posters, case studies, blog posts, and lab reports to essays, research reports, book reviews, design notes, policy briefs, and slide presentations. As research demonstrates, engaging in formal writing tasks like these and in smaller, informal writing assignments is critical to support student learning. Moreover, when appropriately designed, both informal and formal writing assignments can help faculty teach better. In this interactive workshop, we'll briefly consider why we might use writing in our teaching before focusing on some useful, easily modified ways to do so.
