WRITE@UGA 2017

Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - 11:15am

Beginning Feb. 13, the Writing Intensive Program and Center for Teaching and Learning present a series of workshops, exhibitions and opportunities that put the spotlight on writing - the annual Write @ UGA Celebration and Showcase of Writing:

writing is an integral part of a well rounded academic experience, no matter the background, no matter the degree. That principle has led to the creation of numerous initiatives, courses, programs and scholarships that deal extensively with writing. Best of all, these programs exist within and across nearly EVERY branch of the University. So, whether you are a skilled writer looking to polish your composition skills and make yourself more marketable, an engineering major who has not written formally since freshman year or anything in between, this site will give you the information and resources you need to Write @ UGA.

Perhaps you are a professor looking for new ways to integrate writing into your classroom but are unsure where to start. There are many resources and programs here that can help you and your student writers. For example, programs like the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Writing Fellows Program offer faculty the opportunity to come together to study writing pedagogy and develop resources and methods that foster writing at the University of Georgia. 

The week includes:

CTL Pedagogy Workshop: Teaching, Assigning, and Assessing Writing in Large Classes - Feb. 13

participants will learn about writing-intensive practices (e.g., peer review, workshops, research papers, reflective writing, and others) that can be implemented in classes across the curriculum with enrollments ranging from 30 to 300.

CTL Pedagogy Workshop: Writing in the FYO - Feb. 15

designed for those who teach a seminar as part of the FYO program, will focus on creating successful and appropriate writing assignments for one-hour FYO seminars. Examples of successful writing assignments used in previous FYO seminars will be shared and discussions will center on the development of writing assignments to be used in participants’ courses.
