Understanding Threshold Concepts about Writing

Wednesday, September 13, 2017
1:00 pm
King Library 133

Learn about the idea of threshold concepts—concepts critical for epistemological participation in an area of study or practice. Then consider some threshold concepts about writing (such as “writing is not perfectible” or “writing embodies disciplinary identities and ideologies”) and imagine ways to build these into your courses and assignments in order to better facilitate student learning of writing.

The same workshop will also be offered Thursday, September 14 at 11 a.m.

Part of the Writing Across the Curriculum series given by the Howe Center for Writing Excellence.
