Introductory Seminars for Faculty and TAs
The Center regularly offers WAC introductory seminars for faculty and teaching assistants. Two seminars are held for TAs: a two-day seminar in August and a two-day seminar in January, both held just before classes start. Faculty seminars have been held for three days the first week of the summer I term in May or on multiple days across the semester.
Participants receive a small stipend for attending. To see the schedule of seminar dates, please consult the Center calendar. If you are interested in attending a WAC introductory seminar, please contact Debbie Carrier or Paul Prior to register.
WAC II Seminars for Faculty
Periodically, the Center offers follow-up seminars for faculty who have attended WAC introductory seminars. These half-day seminars are opportunities for participants to discuss their implementation of WAC approaches, share the changes they’ve made to their teaching, and expand on topics raised in the WAC introductory seminar. To see the schedule of seminar dates, please consult the Center calendar.
The Center regularly offers campus-wide workshops on topics such as teaching ESL writers and source use, citation, and plagiarism. We also frequently collaborate with departments to develop specialized workshops. To arrange a workshop for your program or department, please contact Paul Prior.
