Jessie Moore, director of the Center for Engaged Learning and professor of professional writing and rhetoric, will present on "Teaching for (Writing) Transfer Across the University: Building on What Students Know from First-Year through Graduation"
Writing Matters. Students use writing both to learn and to demonstrate their learning, and employers are clamoring for stronger written communication abilities from college graduates. How can faculty across the university help students become better writers? This workshop explores strategies for designing or revising assignments to facilitate transfer by building on students’ prior learning about writing.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 23, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m., Belk Library, Room 102. Lunch will be provided so please register.
