Integrating writing into your courses can be beneficial to your students, especially so to international students. Communicating about your topics helps strengthen student learning. Writing provides students an opportunity to organize their thoughts related to the topic, which helps clarify their thinking. At the same time, it is through writing that students learn how experts in your field communicate with each other.
Writing activities can take several forms, ranging from frequent, quick, and informal activities, to creative writing assignments, to more involved, long term assignments involving research, expository writing, and/or collaborative projects. You can use writing activities in class to diagnose learning difficulties, assess student mastery of concepts, and to enable students to express their thoughts about the topic in reflective or creative ways. Writing also provides an interesting and varied instructional activity for your students, both online and offline.
After the workshop, the participants will be able to
- follow best practices in integrating writing into the syllabus
- select and apply tools and strategies to prevent and overcome difficulties in the writing process
- give and initiate various forms of text feedback effectively
- use techniques to motivate students to write.
