"It's Alive!": Animating Academic Prose
January 15, 2019
Facilitator: April Middeljans
In this workshop we will share 1) the challenges of writing within the stylistic conventions of our disciplines, and 2) strategies for achieving greater clarity, grace, and liveliness in our academic prose. Bring examples of writing in your discipline that you admire or that you loathe, and together we will parse what makes them sing or sink. (You are also welcome to bring samples of your own prose to share.) Nerdy grammar jokes will be provided at no extra cost.

Studies show students plagiarize as a last resort. How, then, might we better support our students? Come to this workshop to learn best practices for helping students navigate their writing assignments so that plagiarism doesn't become an option.
