Tonight’s Faculty Meetup: Reading, Writing and Academic Integrity

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) is hosting a faculty meetup focused on the pedagogy of reading, writing and academic integrity tonight, Wednesday, September 20, from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the Regis Room.

More than ever, college faculty are under pressure to cultivate critical reading and writing skills in students. Courses, lessons and assignments compete with a wide variety of other priorities and media. We often struggle to persuade students that these intellectual virtues are worth their time. Our most frustrating experiences come when we discover that students committed academic dishonesty, rather than making a sincere attempt to create original work.

This meetup will not be a formal presentation, rather faculty should come as colleagues to share experiences and concerns. Moreover, each participant is encouraged to share triumphs, however tentative or small. For example, when did you do or discover something that you believe fostered reading and writing skills among students? What can you share with colleagues across campus that might help them in their classrooms and disciplines?

All faculty are welcome and COLI will supply refreshments. Together, we can do much more!
