The study and teaching of writing has moved from an exclusively service-pedagogical function and into a disciplinary moment. There are a number of implications of this move: a body of knowledge, methodological maturing, courses of study such as graduate programs and undergraduate majors, and the possibility of evidence-based pedagogical practices.
Professor Grabill's talk will have two parts. In the first part, he will trace the disciplinary moment and discuss some implications of that moment. In the second, he will delve more deeply into the teaching of writing in terms of what the research evidence says makes an impact with regard to better writing.
When: Friday, 2 August, at 12 noon
Where: The Writing Hub Common Room, 330 Old Teachers College (A22)
RSVP: by Monday, 29 July to Karen Polyak at Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org
