Si Happy Hour- Writing-to-Learn in Large-enrollment Classes ( with Erin Vasudevan, Peter Gergen & Bill Collins)

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Online

Although many instructors can appreciate the learning opportunities offered by written assignments, those of us who teach large undergraduate classes face practical barriers to incorporating writing in our curricula.
