Fall Institute on Teaching with Writing: Session 2

Friday, October 8, 2021, 2:00pm to 5:00pm

How do we respond to and evaluate student writing, including multimodal work, without overwhelming ourselves and our students? This session, the second in a series of two workshops on teaching with writing, will focus on prioritizing course and assignment goals to respond to and grade student writing. It will offer a repertoire of strategies for giving feedback at various stages of the writing process across a range of media from handwriting to digital audio-video. These include designing effective peer review workshops and scaffolding students through the process of revision. Participants will also share and discuss an assignment they revised based on what they learned in the first session on October 1st.

The Fall 2021 Institute on Teaching with Writing is a series of two virtual interactive workshops on teaching with writing. Faculty and TAs in all disciplines, departments, and colleges (particularly instructors outside of Rhetoric and English) who are interested in using writing to promote student learning are welcome. Participants are expected to attend both sessions. Registration required. Sponsored by the Writing Center, the Obermann Center and the Department of Rhetoric.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact Deirdre Egan in advance at 3194308930 or deirdre-egan@uiowa.edu.
