Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop #3: How Do I Get Students to Draft?: Building Writing Processes into Your Course

As academic writers, we know that good academic writing is incredibly difficult, requiring multiple drafts, feedback from our friends and colleagues, and loads of time. However, no matter how much we encourage students to start their writing projects early and build in that time for thinking and drafting, we know they are often motivated by the final deadline alone.

In this workshop, we present a range of options for building writing processes into your course design, such as prewriting, phased drafting, rough drafts, and reflection. Importantly, we discuss how these processes might be built into a course without taking too much time away from course content (or the faculty member!). Participants will leave with options that work best for their course and writing assignments that will ultimately improve student engagement with writing projects.

Lunch provided to first 25 registrants.
