 This workshop will assist faculty in preparing instructional materials using a writing-in-the-disciplines framework. Drawing on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, workshop leaders will discuss how to develop new instructional materials that integrate the principles of writing-to-learn, and writing-in-the-disciplines. Advice on integrating two of the Texas core competencies (critical thinking and communication) will be discussed fully, and others will be included in the overall discussion. Strategies for student assessment and outcomes assessment will also be discussed. Participants will leave the workshop with drafted curriculum materials.
