Writing with Sources Workshop

This workshop will introduce techniques for helping students engage primary and secondary sources.

Monday, December 9th, 2019
8:30 am – 3:00 pm / Anderson 121

This one-day workshop will introduce techniques for helping students engage primary and secondary sources in varied, complex, and disciplinary-appropriate ways. George Cusack, Writing Across the Curriculum Director, will discuss how to help students identify scholarly conversations and negotiate the differing expectations they create for writers.  Iris Jastram from the library will present the latest findings from their ongoing research project into student media literacy and how the rubric they’ve developed from that project can help instructors develop and assess the media literacy components of their courses. Finally, Lin Winton, Director of the Quantitative Resource Center, will discuss how to introduce quantitative reasoning into your course in ways that stem naturally from the discipline and material and how to scaffold QR skills to build on students’ existing knowledge.  Throughout the workshop, faculty will have time to assess their existing assignments and to compare courses and assignments with their colleagues. Eligible faculty will receive a stipend of $120 for their participation. Lunch will be provided.
