Winter 2014

Thursday, January 30, 2014  |  3:00-5:30  |  Kane Hall, Walker-Ames Room
Writing for All: A Campus Conversation on Working with Student Writing in a Multilingual University

Welcome and opening remarks to be given by Bob Stacey, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences

The UW has recently increased its international student enrollments, but while this has been an enriching change, finding effective ways to work with multilingual student writers has asked us to change how we design and implement our writing assignments.

This workshop will address these issues by:

  • soliciting feedback from faculty on the challenges of working with international as well as domestic students’ writing;
  • providing practical, research-based methods for working with linguistically diverse classrooms;
  • offering new initiatives to support faculty in designing assignments effectively and grading papers efficiently; and
  • introducing people who design and run writing programs and writer support groups on all three UW campuses.

The workshop will be preceded and followed by the First Annual UW Writing Fair, featuring representatives from UW Bothell, Seattle, and Tacoma.  The Writing Fair will run 30 minutes before and after – from 3:00-3:30 and 5:00-5:30.

Co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences Writing Program and the CTL
