Faculty workshops are limited to fifteen participants and are both experiential and collaborative. Some of the many IWT workshops offered in the last two years have included: workshops on “Syllabus and Assignment Design,” “The Dialogic Classroom: Questions and Questioning,” “Teaching the Academic Paper,” and “Responding to Student Papers”. “Writing to Learn” is the keystone workshop for becoming familiar with the Institute’s core “practices”: it models methods and approaches that make the classroom writing-rich and student-centered, emphasizing both critical thinking and analytic writing.
Unlike so many lecture-format professional development programs for teachers, IWT workshops are intellectually rigorous, engaging, and effective programs in which all participants experience the practices they will bring to their students. Time and again, faculty report that these workshops have transformed who they are as teachers and fundamentally changed how they understand assignments and the use writing in the classroom.
