 FCTL Co-Op Workshops

Spring 2014

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning is here to support your professional growth and development. The Co-Op Workshops are designed to bring RIC faculty together and to encourage the sharing of our expertise across disciplines, while inviting us to become more reflective about what we do as teachers. During several weeks of the term we offer two different opportunities to attend a workshop.


Working Together to Design Successful FYS Writing Experiences

Join others in faculty-led discussions about FYS assignments and writing pedagogy.  In March and April, four Co-op Workshops organized by Michael Michaud (Director of the Writing Board and FYS instructor) and other FYS faculty members will be hosted in the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning.   At each workshop, a different FYS instructor or set of instructors will lead us in a conversation about writing assignments used in FYS.  What works?  What doesn’t?  How can we work together to strengthen first-year student writing and build a foundation for writing across the curriculum?  Please attend as many workshops as you please!
