WID Spring 2021 GA workshops
Practicum workshop #1: Philip Troutman, WID Director
Monday, 2/1, 12:30 - 2:00 pm EST
This is the mandatory first workshop for WID GAs completing the practicum curriculum for formal recognition of their expertise in WID teaching, and to develop job applications materials.
Friday, 2/12, noon - 2:00 pm EST
In this interactive workshop, you'll pick up tips and tactics from faculty from across the disciplines.
Each will first offer a brief account of their most effective strategies for fostering engaged student writing, then each will lead hands-on activities in breakout groups to dig deeper into this pedagogy and invite you to share your ideas as well.
While aimed at WID faculty and GAs, all GW instructors are invited to attend. How can you use writing to introduce students to the practices of your discipline? How can you help them to produce work that’s more complex, thoughtful, and polished?
