​The campus Writing Board and the Faculty Center for Teaching and Lear​ning (FCTL) are teaming up to offer an online mini-course, “The How To of Peer Review,” which will guide you through a critical element of getting high-quality writing from your students – peer review – a teaching practice in which students share and discuss their writing-in-progress with one another before they hand it in to you for a grade.

“The How To of Peer Review” consists of a series of instructional videos (about an hour of content) that participants watch during the scheduled week of the mini course and discuss with faculty-colleagues and the designer/instructor, Mike Michaud. The videos and discussion will be available to participants via Blackboard. 

This mini-course will run during the week of March 25-29. Registration is limited to 10 faculty members and spots will be given out on a first-come/first-served basis. ​Learn more about “The How To of Peer Review” and obtain registration information at the FCTL’s website​.​

​Please join the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) and the Writing Board for the annual Summer Seminar for Teaching Writing Panel Discussion on Writing Pedagogy on Wednesday, March 20, noon-1:30 p.m. in Adams Library 406. ​Seven faculty members from across the disciplines will discuss their experiences learning about and implementing evidence-based practices for teaching writing in the disciplines. This workshop will be facilitated by Michael Michaud, chair of the Writing Board and associate professor of English.​​


​The fourth Annual Spring Expo of Research and Creative Activity is approaching, and we’re looking for your help to make it a success! The Spring Expo includes a multitude of events throughout April and May that feature student work from freshmen to seniors, across all five schools!

We are looking for students to attend events that fit their schedule to collect data that will help us better track involvement and participation at each event. Students will be paid $12 per hour and will be required to attend a one-hour training prior to the event(s) that they will be attending.

We are also looking for volunteers to assist with the Spring Expo Poster Sessions and Oral Sessions on Monday, April 22. Specifically, we’re looking for students who can assist with set up (7-9 a.m.), supporting the event (two-hour shifts from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and clean up (5-6 p.m.). Student volunteers will receive a gift card to the campus book store.

If you are interested in getting involved in either of these opportunities or have any questions please contact us at
