CWCC Events and Workshops

The CWCC hosts two regular workshops in the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. The Responding to Student Drafts takes place in-person in the Center for Excellence in Writing and Communication and provides instructors with strategies for providing students feedback on written assignments. The How to Teach a “W” Course Workshop is hosted by Daniel M. Gross, the CWCC, over Zoom and provides instructors that are considering proposing an upper-division writing course.

Responding to Student Drafts Workshop

Thursday November 2, 2023 | 12:00-1:30 PM
Center for Excellence in Writing & Communication | Science Library 193
Presented by Leah Senatro, Graduate Student Researcher

Commenting on in-progress writing is some of the most direct and influential teaching instructors can do. But how can we ensure that the comments we provide (in written, audio, or video formats) help student writers revise their work between drafts? In this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to diagnose comment-worthy aspects of student drafts, to practice writing comment strategies, and to share their approaches with colleagues.

Please RSVP here by October 30, 2023. Lunch will be provided.
