Fall 2017 WIC Faculty Seminar

What is the WIC Faculty Seminar?

The annual WIC Faculty Seminar focuses on learning best practices for teaching writing across the disciplines.  Designed for faculty teaching WIC courses and faculty using writing in non-WIC courses, the seminar is appropriate for all faculty who are interested in improving student learning through writing.

Interested participants must be nominated by their unit heads or chair, and nominations for the fall seminar are accepted begining the spring term preceding the seminar.

The Faculty Seminar consists of five weekly two-hour meetings, each with a different emphasis relating to teaching writing.  The list below identifies both the emphasis and some key questions addressed for each meeting:

First Meeting: Defining Writing-Intensive Teaching

Second Meeting: Using Informal Writing for Critical Thinking and Learning Content

Third Meeting: Designing Formal Writing Assignments

Fourth Meeting: Responding to Work in Progress

Fifth Meeting: Evaluating Student Writing

Upon completing the seminar, participating faculty receive a modest honorarium.

The Fall 2017 Faculty Seminar is scheduled for the following dates, from 3-5 p.m., in Milam 215:
