In 90-minute sessions over three days, participants will focus on key aspects of these courses, then have several independent hours to experiment and develop ideas, then reconvene to "kick the tires" with colleagues and exchange feedback.  

January 16, 17, 18 | 10:00AM-3:00PM

Offered by the Center for the Liberal Arts, along with colleagues from the Writing Resources Center and Swem Library, this workshop is designed for faculty teaching COLL 100 and COLL 150 courses. In the context of students' first-year experience, participants consider underlying principles of communication, the specific goals of 100 or 150, example assignments and syllabi, and ways to integrate the communications/writing component to support their course content. Participants will walk away with a draft syllabus and resources to support assignments. Plan for three full days with homework.

Space is limited to 15, therefore priority is given to participants who can commit to the full three days. Exceptions to this will be made on a case-by-case basis as space allows. Each participant will receive a stipend of $300 for participating in the full workshop. Lunch is provided each day.
