March 7: First Friday Workshop

Workshop focuses on writing and student engagement

TEXT SIZE

2:14 p.m., Feb. 24, 2014--The National Survey on Student Engagement shows a clear and strong connection between writing and raised levels of student engagement. But instructors are sometimes unsure about what kinds of writing to assign and worried about increasing their own workloads by doing so.

The next First Friday workshop, to be held from 3:30-5 p.m., March 7, 208 Gore Hall, will provide strategies for addressing both concerns.
