How can we connect writing and service-learning to achieve existing course goals like research, field-specific writing, and reflection in a way that will not bury instructors under a pile of grading? Our webinar will be interactive, so all participants are encouraged to come prepared with identified course goals that they feel might be advanced through writing. We will discuss writing across the disciplines. We encourage anyone interested in incorporating more writing assignments into their service-learning courses to join us.
