Weekly Coffee Hour Chat about Teaching Writing Online

​​​

Teaching writing is hard. Teaching writing online, especially if it's new to you, can be even harder.

To give faculty a place to share frustrations & successes and hear about others' online teaching experiences, the Writing Center Director, Dr. Jennifer Follett, will be hosting weekly "coffee hour chats" for any UD faculty who want to talk with each other about their online teaching of writing efforts.

These chats will be focused specifically one teaching writing online in any discipline. The Faculty Commons has a lot of resources to support other aspects of teaching online.

Zoom Meetings will take place every week, beginning the first week of classes at 2pm-3pm Wednesdays and 2pm-3pm Thursdays. 

You may show up for the Coffee Hour Chat every week, or you may pop in just once or twice--whenever you want to talk about teaching writing online, you'll be welcome! 

Coffee Chats will be held via Zoom. To get the Zoom info, register here. Registering does not obligate you to any meetings; it just gives you access to use when you want to. 

Consultations on Teaching Writing

​Writing Center Director, Dr. Jennifer Follett, is happy to discuss writing pedagogy with faculty who teach writing in any discipline or who rely on writing assignments to assess student learning. You may want to ask for a consultation if:

  • You plan to integrate a new writing assignment into your course;
  • You are not getting the results you hope for from students' writing;
  • You have questions about how to give feedback to student writers or how to evaluate their writing;
  • You would like to try informal writing assignments as learning tools and want to brainstorm how;
  • You feel overwhelmed by the amount of time you spend responding to and grading student writing. 

Email Jen at jfollett@udel.edu to set up a time to talk!

Consultations on Teaching Speaking or Multimodal Presentations

​Many UD faculty incorporate individual or small group presentations into their courses to help students learn material; enhance their graphic design and public speaking skills; and to facilitate peer-to-peer learning and collaboration. 

Writing Center Associate Director for Oral Communication, Christopher Volker, is happy to discuss efforts like integrating presentations, speeches, and poster projects into your course. You can ask him about:

  • Assigning individual or group presentations;
  • Supporting students' multimedia projects with feedback and resources;
  • Evaluating multimedia or speech assignments.
