FACULTY SEMINAR ON THE TEACHING OF WRITING

Each year, the Director of Academic Writing convenes a five-week Faculty seminar on the teaching of writing.  Among other topics, faculty in the seminar discuss best practices in assignment and syllabus design, the most effective ways of responding to student writing, the challenges of identifying and conveying the qualities of successful academic prose, and the information we have on the experience of students as they work to become more successful writers.  Seminar members receive a stipend to support their participation. If you are interested in joining the seminar, keep an eye out for announcements or contact Sean McCann, smccann@wesleyan.edu.
