Writing for the Disciplines: Upgrading the Academic Research Paper: Designing, Implementing, and Assessing Formal Writing Assignments
This presentation was held as a TEAMS virtual meeting.
Teaching a Writing-Intensive course? This workshop is for you! Research has proven that students learn best when given problem-based assignments that promote critical thinking and active engagement. Specifically, student engagement correlates with student writing, demonstrating that deep learning occurs when students are given good written assignments. This workshop defines the parameters for a well-developed, formal written assignment and explores practical ways that faculty may implement formal assignments situated in the specific rhetorical contexts of their discipline.
