While writing facilitates learning effectively, it also serves a means for a writer to become an expert in their field. Writing studies have shown how low stakes writing helps writers to learn constructed domain knowledge in their academic field, provided that writers practice short, informal writing tasks that will encourage them to focus their attention on a particular aspect of the research at hand. This workshop will explore how informal writing tasks in participants’ disciplines can enhance their academic writing skills.
Students must register for all workshops through their myUCF Student Center under Graduate Students then Pathways to Success.
