MT Engage’s commitment to integrative thinking and reflection promotes a strengthening of universal, transferable skills throughout an undergraduate curriculum. Students learn to make connections across multiple contexts and educational experiences. Developing these skills requires consistent reflective writing. This workshop will provide the following benefits to attendees:  

  1. Identify the value of reflective writing assignments as classroom heuristics and as tangible benchmarks for students;
  2. Create teaching goals for reflective writing assessment to strengthen reflective writing assignments and better understand how to respond to student writing;
  3. Provide new ways of designing and evaluating reflective writing assignments.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free so send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
