SET Spring 2021 - How Can Writing Support Learning
From Craig Clarkson
Even as instructors frequently use writing as evidence of students’ performance in a course, student writing also generates artifacts of promise—evidence of learning in process, signs of things yet to come. Writing itself is an opportunity for learning. Drawing on insights from research about writing across the curriculum, learning transfer, and meaningful writing experiences, this SET will present instructors with ideas and practices for using writing to support student learning in low-stakes ways and in formal assignments. Participants will also consider how writing may serve as a form of engagement.
