Designing effective writing assignments that foster intellectual development and critical thinking among students can be a challenge for instructors. This is an even tougher challenge when students may be unaware of or unschooled in disciplinary expectations for writing. Participants in this workshop will discuss strategies for writing transparent, well-crafted assignment prompts and grading criteria which promote the kinds of thinking and learning critical for students to be successful in your courses and which will act as accurate, authentic measures of student learning.
For questions, please contact Dr. Meg Gregory, Associate Director of Faculty Programs, Educational Development, Center for Teaching and Learning.
Registration for this workshop will open the last week of June
