Spring Quarter 2017 D-WRD Sessions

We have two D-WRD sessions scheduled before the end of the school year, during which we can also plan and schedule AQ 2017 sessions if you have ideas, proposals, requests, or recommendations for future agenda items:

Friday, April 28th: Teaching Online Writing Courses — FYW, Professional Writing, other Upper-Division Courses
SAC 301 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

An open-ish agenda for updates, problem-solving, assignment design ideas — will include options in monitoring student progress and assigning readings that result in documented reading. If you have anything to share here — problems, assignments, projects, methods — please do!

Friday, May 12th: Identifying Rhetorical Purposes in Multimodal Composing Projects:
— note the time change: 12:30 p.m.- 1:30 p.m.

Following up on last year’s conversation: how to help students identify readers (public and counterpublics) —  and possible rhetorical effects for multimodal composing projects — and how to assess them.

And we’ll use both sessions to look ahead to the Autumn Quarter. 

If you can’t make these sessions but would like to talk about them or get access to the associated materials — pretty-please email me and we’ll set something up. 

If you don’t know what any of this means, you can still come for the sugary treats. 

Thanks, Tricia Hermes, for helping to pull this together!
