Informed by the critical work of Writing Across the Curriculum initiatives and tailored to meet the distinct writing needs of UWM students, CETL’s newest series “Writing for Teaching and Learning” launches this spring! Based on John Bean and Dan Melzer’s popular text Engaging Ideas: The Professor’s Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom, the Writing for Teaching and Learning workshops are designed for teachers of any discipline who have already integrated writing into their coursework and those who are wanting to start.
Offered exclusively virtually, these workshops are practical by design, and participants who attend the first four workshops (in either format) and complete accompanying “studio sessions” are eligible to earn the introductory digital badge of completion.
