SHOWCASE: Teaching Research Writing: A Showcase of Mini-lessons and Activities from across the Curriculum (90 mins)
We strive to develop our students’ general writing skills, but how can we as teachers transform how they “see” writing and language choices in their major discipline? This session will feature instructors from a cross-disciplinary faculty learning community (FLC) that focused on teaching research writing. The FLC was organized around language noticing pedagogies designed to help students first identify and then strategically apply the writing and language moves that are most common in research-based academic writing across the disciplines. The panel will begin with an overview of the FLC from its facilitator and the writing pedagogy that informed her approach to the FLC. Then, FLC instructor members from a variety of disciplines will describe how they have drawn on their learning in the FLC and adapted it to their teaching. The session will then open up into a gallery walk of teaching artifacts with some small group Q&A. Participants will walk away with concrete ideas and examples for teaching research-writing in their courses.
