Designing Accessible Writing Experiences
April, 9, 2019, 4-6 pm
Are you thinking about how to provide your students opportunities to demonstrate their learning through writing? Are you interested in crafting assignments that allow students to authentically express what they know?
It can be a challenge to provide students with academic supports while structuring deep engagement with course material, particularly in written assignments. However, there are frameworks that make this work easier for both instructors and students. This workshop will draw from principles of accessibility and writing pedagogy and give participants the opportunity to put them into practice by sharing and reworking assignments. By the end, writing assignments will be more thoroughly designed to allow students to express their knowledge authentically by communicating clear expectations, options for performance, and multiple ways of engaging with writing.
If you are interested but cannot make the physical meeting, please feel free to send on assignments that are partially successful, so that they may be returned to you with participant suggestions (please send assignments to firstname.lastname@example.org). Those in attendance will have the opportunity to bring in assignments to be workshopped, learn from others’ work, or both.
