On My Own: Teaching Writing as a Research Librarian

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For two years I co-taught the research portion of both introductory and advanced research and writing courses at the Wake Forest University School of Divinity, along with their Academic Skills Instructor. When my co-instructor left the University in Fall 2018 I was asked to continue teaching the introductory course on my own. While I felt confident in teaching about research, I had never taught writing in a formal way. In this presentation, I will discuss the strategies I developed to teach writing, as well as how I have revised the Introduction to Research and Writing course to reflect my strengths and expertise during the two semesters I have taught it on my own. I will share ideas for course readings, classroom exercises, and lecture topics, as well as how changes to the major course project were inspired by ideas shared during a 2019 Atla Conference session.
