Composing Environments for Teaching and Writing

The 2017 ECE English Summer Institute will join recent composition research to our own work as teachers of First-Year Writing courses. Our contexts, here, will include current scholarship on classroom ecology, the UConn FYW pedagogy, our own course materials, and an array of yet-to-be-discovered connections and possibilities. Over the course of the three days, we will read, discuss, and workshop course materials together. Among the topics we can expect to address:

redefining the role of the teacher (seeing teaching as less about engineering outcomes and more about establishing settings conducive to writing)

putting student work at the center of the course

building community strengthened by heterogeneity

using technology to circulate writing

seeing academic writing (and information literacy) as connective and oriented outward
