“Teaching. Writing. Learning.” Conversations on Teaching Writing
“Teaching. Writing. Learning.” is a campus collaboration of the Center for Teaching, the Writing Studio, the Jean & Alexander Heard Library, and the English Language Center to sponsor resourceful experiences for anyone who teaches writing at Vanderbilt. In 2013-14, we sponsored a series of conversations. (See list below.)
This year, we’re holding a day-long workshop focused on two specific topics:
- teaching multimodal writing, and
- cognitive approaches to teaching writing.
The T.W.L. Institute will be limited to a small group. Details, the date, and registration information will be announced soon.
Resources mentioned and shared at the conversations will be available on the “Teaching. Writing. Learning.” Research Guide, from the Jean & Alexander Heard Library (pictured right).
