The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute presents

A Faculty Development Roundtable Discussion


Innovative Writing Pedagogies Beyond the Humanities


Thursday, November 14, 12:45-2:15pm, 137 E. 25th St., Room 323



From:  Suzanne Epstein, Interim Director, Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute

 Innovative Writing Pedagogies Beyond the Humanities

How are instructors integrating writing instruction into disciplines outside the humanities? What lessons can be learned from the unique challenges and opportunities of writing pedagogy in the math, science, and social science classroom? In this roundtable we will consider the innovative techniques of science faculty who have made writing an integral part of the classroom experience, and brainstorm new practices and assignments for those who would like to increase writing in their courses. We will explore specific activities, techniques, and methods for advancing student writing and consider how these ideas can be applied across various disciplines. We’ll be joined by Professor David Gruber (Biology and Environmental Science).

A full listing of all our Fall '13 workshops can be found on the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute website:
