Core Programming in the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE)


First-Time FYS Faculty Workshop

Wednesday, January 30, 11:30am-12:30pm in the CTE (UNH 3030)

The Core will be hosting a lunch for faculty who are teaching FYS for the first time. The aim is to share your experiences early on in the semester, discuss what has been working well in your class, and get advice on how to address any problems you might have encountered. The event will take place from 11:30am-12:30pm in the CTE (UNH 3030), with lunch provided.

Writing Analytically Workshop Series

Wednesday, February 13, 11:30am-12:30pm in the CTE (UNH 3030)

Wednesday, April 3, 11:30am-12:30pm in the CTE (UNH 3030)

This semester we will also be hosting a workshop series on using the book Writing Analytically by Jill Stephen and David Rosenwasser as a text and tool for teaching writing. Each workshop will provide lesson plan ideas and worksheets for topics such as reading and writing analytically, reasoning from evidence to claims, evolving a thesis, forms and formats across the curriculum, style, and working with sources. Materials and lunch will be provided, and purchasing the book is not required. This series is for FYS Faculty and Writing Instructors, those teaching courses with a writing flag, and anyone else who is interested.
