Small Teaching

Small Teaching: Best Practices in Teaching and Learning with Writing

Small intervention, big impact—so goes the motto of small teaching (Lang, 2019; Flower and Lang, 2021). Instead of turning your seminar upside down, it’s much more effective to take small, incremental steps. In this seminar, participants will learn essential principles of active and writing-intensive teaching, testing ideas and approaches that can be implemented immediately in their own teaching. The seminar is directed at experienced university teachers looking to revitalize their approach, new university teachers curious about the latest research, students interested in teaching in their communities or working as academic coaches at the university, and anyone else who is curious about teaching and learning. Themes will include backwards course design, transparent teaching, meaningful assignments, time-saving feedback, equitable grading, writing to learn, and teaching with (or without) generative artificial intelligence technologies.
