Winter Quarter Professional Development Opportunities
It’s not too late to sign up for professional development courses offered through the Center for Scholarship and Faculty Development and its Educational Technology and Media Services.
Applying Metacognition to Teaching Writing
March 7 – Cremona 102 9Am – 3PM
Instructor: Christine Chaney, Ph.D., Professor of English & Interim Director of Campus Writing
We have been talking a lot about writing at SPU this fall! Come learn more about how the latest writing pedagogy research can support your own classroom practices for any of your classes requiring writing as a tool for research and scholarship. Join Chris Chaney for an exploration on how to create writing assignments that help develop students’ critical thinking skills, impacting how they approach your subject matter and making your own time spent on feedback and grading that much easier, too. Moving beyond surface errors and grammar, Dr. Chaney will work with faculty to develop rhetorical frameworks that enhance critical thinking, and metacognition skills as well as mastery of course material.
Open to full-time, part-time and adjunct faculty and staff (with permission of supervisor). Faculty will receive $50 honorarium as well as course materials.
