Writing Pedagogy Workshops
Careers in Teaching Writing: A Workshop
This workshop focuses on helping attendees apply to writing jobs, either this year or in the future. We will look at the jobs that come out each week, figure out which ones fit with attendees' experience and interests, and work on tailoring CV's, job letters, and teaching philosophy statements to best address what these job ads seek. Over the course of the workshop, we will also do some cursory readings and discussion of historical and current trends in composition, so that attendees' letters and teaching philosophies use language that conveys an understanding of the field. Finally, we will discuss possibilities for research projects (even groups projects) that might be publishable in writing/composition journals, which could make a big difference in making one's materials stand out to a committee.
The workshop will be meeting from 2-3:30 on the following Thursdays.
