Writing in the Disciplines workshop at FSCJ, South Campus

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Writing in the Disciplines is a workshop designed to provide STEM faculty at both the secondary and post-secondary levels with strategies for including a variety of writing activities in their courses. Workshop participants learn how to add writing practice to their STEM courses that will help students improve their writing and at the same time enhance their learning in the discipline.

Topics include: • Why writing matters - the theoretical underpinnings • The role of informal and low-stakes writing both in and out of class • Building a formal writing product using scaffolding techniques • Developing meaningful rubrics for evaluating writing products • Providing students with feedback on their writing in the context of a STEM classroom • Sharing writing-related resources on the DeafTEC website

Each workshop participant will leave with a plan for developing a writing assignment that provides students with writing practice and the tools to provide constructive feedback.

This Writing in the Disciplines workshop is part of an ALL-DAY training:
