Fifteen Faculty Participate in 6th Annual Faculty Writing Residency
Fifteen Elon faculty members participated in the Sixth Annual Faculty Writing Residency from May 31through June 3. The annual program sponsored by the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning inspires and supports faculty writing.
Sophie Adamson, Corinne Auman, Joan Barnatt, Christy Benson, Paul Castro, Judy Esposito, Faith River James, Katie King, Ketevan Kupatadze, Rebecca Pope-Ruark, Scott Proudfit, Kim Pyne, Omri Shimron, Donna Van Bodegraven and Scott Windham spent the week working on scholarship about their teaching and learning.
Balancing dedicated time for faculty writing with small group feedback on drafts, these intensive summer retreats help faculty make the crucial, and often difficult, step of going public with their SoTL research. In addition, the residency process encourages faculty participants to examine their own writing processes, prompting changes in how they support their students’ writing in the disciplines.
During the four-day residency, faculty devote time each day to writing, small group feedback, and group lunches, with the residency book-ended by a group opening and closing. The residencies are facilitated by Peter Felten, Director of CATL, Jessie Moore, English: Professional Writing & Rhetoric, and Michael Strickland, English/Environmental Studies.
The 2012 Faculty Writing Residency will be in early June. Watch for application information next spring.
