The Center for Teaching and Learning presents the following events:
On Wednesday Apr. 29, in Building 1N, Room 111 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, we will have a roundtable discussion on writing in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines. Faculty and Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) writing fellows will share their experiences on how they have incorporated WAC into the STEM disciplines.
In theory, WAC and Writing in the Disciplines (WID) are equally accessible and worthwhile to instructors teaching in the humanities and the sciences. In practice, however, instructors teaching STEM courses are far less likely to initiate or develop WAC/WID practices in their classes. We would like to explore ways about changing this view.
Please join us at this roundtable to discuss how WAC/WID practices can be integrated easily and with good effect in STEM courses. Instructors from the Computer Science, Psychology, and Mathematics departments will talk briefly about how they have developed ways to use writing intelligently in their courses. The roundtable will then open to a general discussion.
Also, on Wednesday May 6, in Building 1N, Room 111 from 2:30pm to 3:30pm, Dean Gail Simmons will give a presentation about SENCER. More details will follow.
