The workshop hosted by Elon's Psychology Department, Drs. Kim Epting and Erika Lopina, will share strategies they've used to promote the transfer of writing skills/knowledge across multiple classes. Participants will be given time to brainstorm similar strategies for their curriculum.
This workshop is appropriate for faculty from any discipline who would like to learn about specific strategies we’ve used to promote the transfer of writing skills/knowledge across multiple classes. Aiming to improve students’ writing skill transfer across courses. We worked together to align how we introduce and reinforce elements of psychology literature reviews, from one of our methods courses to one of our senior seminar courses. By using similar ways of describing how evidence in an introduction of an empirical paper works and by using similar peer review assignments that force students to attend to higher-order concerns over copy-editing, we built in multiple and extended exposures to these concepts. We will share quantitative and qualitative information that we collected to assess success of enhancing student writing improvement and will give participants time to brainstorm similar strategies for their own curriculum.
