Write-In

6:00-10:00 p.m.
Dinand 202

Drop in at Dinand Library to work on your end-of-term papers! Carve out some time to get some writing done in solidarity with your peers. Writer's Workshop consultants will be available to answer quick questions that come up while you're writing. Refreshments will be provided.

The goal of the Write-In is to provide resources, structure, and accountability to help you get writing done. We encourage you to stay for the full time, but you are welcome to drop in or out as your schedule allows.

Past Programs for Faculty

Assignment Retreat

Tuesday, January 18
10:00-3:00 p.m. (drop in or out)
Dinand 214 (Debate Room)
Online participation options available

Created as a response to faculty request, this retreat is an opportunity to focus on curriculum design and assignment development—no matter where you are in that process, for any course that needs your attention. Although there will be a few short discussions by representatives from various Holy Cross offices, as well as individual consultations and small group conversations (if you'd like to participate), this is not a workshop. It is a time and place to think, plan, and write. Discussions and consultations with resource specialists will take place virtually. Snacks and coffee will be provided for in-person participants.

Contract/Specs Grading and More: Continuing the Conversation

Thursday, November 18
3:30-4:30 p.m.
Online

During AY 2020-21, the Center for Writing sponsored several faculty-led discussions about contract and specs grading. We hope you will join us to follow up on those conversations and to share what we’ve learned since then as a community. If you’ve tried contract or specifications grading, we want to hear from you about how you think it’s working. If you haven’t, but you want to learn more, come with your questions about these inclusive pedagogical practices.
