Consultations on Teaching with Writing

Would you like support on developing a writing assignment, an in-class writing activity, or an assessment tool for writing? Do you want to brainstorm ideas for a future course that involves writing? Care to talk through ideas and strategies for making grading more equitable and efficient? Are there any aspects of writing instruction you want to chat about?

We’re here to support you. We offer individual consultations (in person or through zoom) on any writing pedagogical matter. Consultations can include topics like:

  • assisting with writing instruction in any upper-division course (both “W” courses and others)
  • designing or revising writing assignments
  • scaffolding long writing assignments
  • responding to student writing
  • coordinating TA support for writing
  • organizing in-class writing activities (such as peer review)
  • developing evaluative criteria, such as rubrics
  • conferencing with students

We are also available for longer-term consultations with faculty and departments on topics such as:

  • developing coordinated writing plans for undergraduate majors
  • mapping how and where writing is taught within a major
  • assessing course and programmatic learning outcomes that involve writing
