Whether you are a seasoned MT Engage instructor or simply want to know more about how you can support your students’ integrative and reflective thinking, we hope you’ll join us for this session. We will identify some of the obstacles that can get in the way of students’ meaningful reflection, and we’ll discuss how assigning frequent informal writings can enhance your students’ relationship to course material. Participants will be provided with sample prompts informed by writing across the curriculum scholarship, as well as some developed by MT Engage faculty. Participants will also have the opportunity to share and get feedback on their own writing prompts.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

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.
