“Intentional Design: Making Assignments that Work”
January 29, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Humanities 2, Room 359
“Intentional Design: Making Assignments that Work,” with Jessie Dubreuil, Kimberly Helmer, Philip Longo, Tonya Ritola, and Heather Shearer
This is the second teaching workshop of The Humanities Institute research cluster “Teaching and Learning in the Humanities Now”, designed to promote collective conversations about how we teach in the humanities now. Whether you teach a large lecture course or a small seminar, join us to explore and discuss best practices for assignment design that go beyond the traditional essay. Writing Program faculty will introduce research-based strategies to promote conceptual thinking and build competency. The interactive workshop will provide faculty with strategies to apply to current or future assignments. Please bring an assignment you would like to work on. All Senate and non-Senate faculty and graduate students welcome.
