January 2010 Institute
The JANUARY 2010 Writing Initiative Faculty Institute is the second part of the development process for faculty developing WI courses that will be piloted in the Spring or Fall 2010 semesters. While part one (August 09) focused on developing materials, this institute will focus on reviewing those materials (syllabi, assignments etc.) that have been developed by participants since August, and we will discuss implementing them in the classroom during your pilot semester.
January 13 & 14 (Wed/Thurs) 8:30 - 3:30 in the Writing Center
We will start the morning with coffee plus and have lunch mid-day.
