Courses in Writing Pedagogy
The Writing Program offers courses in writing pedagogy for graduate students who have been hired to teach for the Writing Program or who are training to teach within their own department or program. Visit our Courses in Writing Pedagogy page for more information.
Professional Development Workshops
Graduate student employees of the Writing Program can polish their skills as writing teachers by participating in our series of professional development workshops. We offer two kinds of workshop series: one for Writing Program staff who work as Writing Interns in the Humanities Core, and another for those who work as Lectors in ENGL 33000: Academic and Professional Writing. These workshops include but are not limited to: best practices in one-on-one pedagogy, crafting effective teaching materials, and mini consultations for evaluating student evaluations.
College Teaching Certificate with Emphasis in Writing Pedagogy
To help graduate students and postdocs develop their approach to teaching and their approach to student writing, the Writing Program has partnered with the Chicago Center for Teaching and Learning to offer a College Teaching Certificate (CTC) with Emphasis in Writing Pedagogy. Visit the link for a detailed description of certificate requirements, which include components such as workshops, implementing pedagogical tools and strategies, written reflections, and submitting a teaching portfolio that includes a syllabus with a substantial writing component.
