Using WAC to Engage Learners
Miller Learning Center Reading Rm (3rd Floor)
Presenter: Mike Palmquist, Associate Provost for Instructional Innovation, Colorado State University
Event Type: New Faculty Workshops, Pedagogy & Practice Workshops, Speaker Series, Special Events
This workshop by Mike Palmquist will explore the ways in which writing across the curriculum activities (WAC) – writing to learn, writing to engage and writing to communicate — can support active teaching and learning in courses across the disciplines. Participants can expect to leave the workshop with an understanding of key approaches to WAC, the role these approaches can play in supporting active teaching and learning and the role they can play in supporting the development of learners’ critical thinking skills. Hands-on activities will ask participants to apply these approaches to current or planned courses. Participants should expect to leave with one or more activities they might use in their courses.
