Designing Inclusive and Engaging Collaborative (Writing) Assignments

August 20 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 19–22, 2024.

Do you want your students to enjoy working and learning together, all while producing a shared document that showcases their best work? Are you afraid of being “that instructor” who creates a collaborative assignment that students loathe — that they experience as inequitable, isolating, ineffective, or just plain miserable?

This workshop introduces you to current research on the benefits and drawbacks of assigning collaborative writing, and introduces you to prevailing models and scripts you can use to navigate assignment design and better support students. You will reflect on strategies you’ve used in the past — that have failed or succeeded — and leave with resources you can use to design collaborative writing assignments that build trust and support learning among diverse students.
