- Focused Presentations
- In-Class Workshops
Welcome to the Office of University Writing’s faculty support area. In these pages you will find resources for working on writing plans and writing in the majors, resources for teaching with ePortfolios, and resources for in-class student support from the Miller Writing Center.
We have organized this page by the different types of resources we provide, so check out the tabs for more on workshops, presentations, and consultations. Or check out the sidebar for a variety of web resources and opportunities to get involved. Contact us if you would like to share your work on writing or ePortfolios or if there’s something you can’t find! Thanks for visiting!
-The Office of University Writing
To arrange a workshop, presentation or facilitated discussion about ePortfolios, writing, or teaching writing, contact us. Though we’re happy to develop material specific to your needs, presentations already prepared are listed below. Please feel free to make suggestions for other topics or inquire about the collaborative development of a workshop tailored specifically to meet the needs of your class or department.
We are available to deliver in-class focused lessons connected to writing for your students. These workshops require the collaborative involvement of the course instructor to both plan and deliver instruction. We can also consult with instructors on designing writing assignments, pacing writing instruction in a course, developing in-class activities to support writing instruction, or reviewing student writing to develop strategies for responding, grading individuals, or assessing whole-class performance. The list below describes in-class focused lessons that have been frequently requested and that we can easily modify to fit your needs. We are happy to collaborate with you to develop other focused lessons.
Contact us by email for more information.
In-Class Collaborative Lessons
Sometimes just talking with someone else can help clarify the goals of an assignment or provide another perspective on how to meet student needs and manage the work of teaching a course that includes writing. We’re here to listen, to talk through ideas with you, to respond to drafts of assignments or help you with responding to student writing. With more than 50 years of combined experience teaching writing at the university level, and with the knowledge we’ve gained from working with faculty and graduate teaching assistants across the university, we can provide you with individual attention. Call on us to find examples for your class, design a workshop for your students or your colleagues, or consider assessment and grading of writing from a new perspective.
