Writing Pedagogy Workshop:
Rhetoric of Writing-Focused Feedback
Wednesday, Oct 31st - 10am-12pm
Writing Program Office (Stuart 330)
Part of the new programming for the College Teaching Certificate with Emphasis in Writing Pedagogy, this collaborative workshop asks participants to think critically about writing-focused feedback in their practice: what, out of many potential functions, do you want your feedback on student writing to do? We'll discuss different modes of and approaches to feedback, as well as the learning objectives they most directly serve. With these insights, participants will be equipped to decide what kind of writing-focused feedback to include in their course design, when, and how. Participants will also be equipped to reflect on and better articulate those decisions when preparing future job materials.
This workshop is geared towards graduate students, postdocs and recent alumni who are currently teaching or plan to teach at UChicago or other institutions.
