Teaching Roundtables

Teaching Roundtables are meant to provide faculty informal opportunities to discuss various teaching topics with their colleagues.  Typically led by faculty, these one-hour discussions foster interdisciplinary dialogue about pedagogical strategies and theories.  

Spring 2016 Teaching Roundtable Series: Reaching Our Students

Partnering with Writing Tutors to Improve Student Writing

It is that time of year when you might be asking yourself, how can I help my students improve their writing? On February 24th from 10:30-11:10 in the Disco Room at the library, come join faculty and writing tutors for a roundtable discussion that will focus on building partnerships between faculty and trained peer writing consultants. Based out of the Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA), writing tutors hold individual sessions with their peers for any course or assignment, while Writing Fellows are dedicated to one faculty member and class for a semester. Come discuss these writing support programs, hear from faculty and writing fellows about their experiences, and explore possibilities for partnering with the CWAA. 

Participants include:

  • Devon Sprague, Director of the Center for Writing & Academic Achievement
  • Sarah Gracombe, Associate Professor of English
  • Fiona Carroll '16
  • Katie Joy '17
