Designing an Effective Writing-Intensive Course

Tuesday, January 19, 2021
10:00 am to 11:30 am

What’s expected in a course coded as “writing intensive”? How can you meet those expectations in your course? This session explores a variety of approaches to teaching a writing-intensive course—from multiple, smaller writing tasks to semester-long research projects. Topics include choosing writing assignments that fit the course structure, helping students learn about writing in your discipline, using peer feedback, deciding whether to assign multiple drafts, balancing course content and attention to writing. Registration is limited to 15 participants.

A Zoom link will be sent to participants prior to the event. This event is part of The Graduate School's Teaching Ideas series and is co-sponsored with the Thompson Writing Program's Writing in the Disciplines Pedagogy Workshop Series. Participation in this workshop and completion of a reflection afterwards can be counted toward the TWP Certificate of Accomplishment in Teaching Writing in the Disciplines. Questions? Please contact Dr. Cary Moskovitz, Director of Writing in the Disciplines, at
