What are the goals for student writing in your department? Are students achieving these goals? As part of the revision to core writing requirements at Georgetown, all undergraduate programs have developed descriptions of the kinds of writing students should be able to do and identified how the programs will help students practice these forms of writing. Now that the Integrated Writing requirement has been in place for a couple of years, this is a good time to start asking how well it’s working, for faculty and for students. In this workshop, we’ll review our goals and discuss how well students are achieving them. The workshop will examine four questions:

What do we want students to know about writing in our fields?
What do we want students to be able to do as writers?
What are we doing to help them develop knowledge and skills as writers?
How do we know whether these strategies work?

The workshop will provide tools to help us examine the connection between our goals and the outcomes visible in students’ writing. Participants should bring a copy of their program’s Integrated Writing statement and a few student papers that represent different levels of performance.  

*Note: this session ends at 4:15pm. Listed as ending at 4:00 to allow registration for the Social hour.
