Join us in this workshop to create guide that introduces students in your writing intensive courses to the expectations of writing in your discipline. Since each discipline has its own style, structure, and format, come and create a handout for students entering your discipline to guide them as they work with the writing process in your classes. We shall consider and address what matters in writing in their discipline and how to share with students discipline specific writing tasks, audience, conventions, citation styles, format, and so on. We hope to build a library, so instructors across campus can refer to your guide to better understand writing in the disciplines. Lunch will be served, and lecturers will receive a small honorarium for attending.

No registration required.
