Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 1, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Adrienne Christiansen, Serie Center and Political Science and Neil Chudgar, English will present  “Talking about “W”: A Conversation about Macalester’s Writing Requirement."  Starting this semester, all courses that previously met the “W” designation need to be recertified based on a revised set of criteria.  In addition, the "Faculty Learning Community on Writing Pedagogy" produced a report in the spring of 2013 that contains recommendations for strengthening Macalester's writing program. If adopted, some recommendations would alter the process of “certifying” a course as meeting the W requirement. How might the current and proposed policies affect our teaching and course design strategies in writing related courses? Come discuss these and other W-related topics.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
