Conversations about Teaching Writing: Kick-off This Wednesday
“Teaching. Writing. Learning.” is a series of monthly lunchtime conversations for anyone who teaches writing at Vanderbilt to gather and discuss specific issues, hear an invited colleague briefly introduce a relevant best practice, hear a bit of about other research-based practices, share one’s own best strategies, and ask questions of all present.
These interactive, informal conversations will offer a venue for discussion, learning new approaches, and solving problems. The “Teaching. Writing. Learning.” series is sponsored by the Center for Teaching, the Writing Studio, and the Heard Library.
Jonathan Gilligan (Earth & Environmental Sciences), Emily King (English), and Richard Lloyd (Sociology) will lead the kick-off event for this series, “Starting the Conversation: A Panel on Inspiring Your Students to Write.” This conversation will take place on Wednesday, August 28 from 12:10-1pm in the Community Room of the Central Library.
