This month’s discussion topic: Thinking about your Spring 2014 assignments? Participate in this conversation to identify concrete strategies for writing research assignments that maximize positive student response.
A series of monthly lunchtime conversations, “Teaching. Writing. Learning.” is for anyone who teaches writing at Vanderbilt to gather and discuss specific issues, hear an invited colleague briefly introduce a relevant best practice, hear a bit of about other research-based practices, share one’s own best strategies, and ask questions of all present.
These interactive, informal conversations will offer a venue for discussion, learning new approaches, and solving problems and is open to all interested VU community members. The “Teaching. Writing. Learning.” series is sponsored by the Center for Teaching, the Writing Studio, the Jean and Alexander Heard Library, and the English Language Center.
