BRAWN Summer Institute for Teachers of Writing
Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3, 2012
at the College of General Studies, Boston University
871 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
A free Institute for Boston-area teachers of college writing who want to learn about trends and issues in the field, engage with current scholarship, augment their teaching strategies, and develop their professional networks.
The Institute will consist of a series of interactive, hands-on workshops facilitated by local composition scholars, with readings distributed in advance. Participants will choose four 2-hour workshops to attend over the first two days; two plenary sessions will “book-end” the institute. Topics will include argumentation, revising, new media, teaching with portfolios, writing centers and writing conferencing, writing across the curriculum, teacher research, multilingual writers, and academic integrity. Facilitators include John Brereton, Nancy Sommers, Chris Gallagher, Joe Bizup, Neal Lerner, Christiane Donahue, Cinthia Gannett, Stephen Sutherland, Suzanne Lane, and others.
