Lightning Talks Spring 2023: Writ Large: The Place of Writing in University Learning

Co-hosted by Digital Learning & Innovation (DL&I) and The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL), the Spring 2023 Lightning Talks are a learning and reflection forum where Boston University faculty and invited guests identify areas of challenge and opportunity and share strategies for engaging educational experiences for all students.

Writ Large: The Place of Writing in University Learning

The central place of writing in university learning and intellectual life is not disputed. But our definition of what constitutes writing continues to evolve, along with our teaching approaches and tools. In a world of multiple Englishes, new writing technologies like ChatGPT, and expectations in the workplace of collaborative writing, what should we as educators know about the place of writing in the university and beyond? Join us for informative presentations and spirited conversation with colleagues on the evolving place of writing in higher education.
