Writing with Community Partners
April 5 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The “Writing with Community Partners” workshop will take place during The 2019 UConn Conference on the Teaching of Writing at the Hartford Public Library on Friday, April 5, 2019 from 2:00-4:30 pm.
At this workshop for faculty, students, and community partners, we will discuss strategies for projects that use writing (broadly construed) to contribute to social change in your local community. Learn about pedagogical and organizational strategies to create reciprocal partnerships that engage students in active learning beyond the classroom and help community organizations reach their goals. Participants will hear from community partners and experienced community learning instructors about examples of writing projects as well as ways to make partnerships more successful. Join us to gain valuable writing resources and take part in group discussions about reciprocal approaches to writing across university/community partnerships.
Participants should register at the UConn Writing Conference website by March 28th.
