U449·Writers and Engineers Unite! A Process for Collaborative Development of Communication Pedagogy Workshop
Workshop · Mechanical Engineering Division
Sun. June 26, 2011 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Room 121, Vancouver International Conference Centre
Session Description

Ticketed event: $35.00
This ticketed event is $25 advance registration and $35 on-site registration. Combining the expertise and experience of engineering and writing faculty improves students’ acquisition and demonstration of skills in technical and professional communication. At Rose-Hulman, writing and engineering faculty started a dialogue to formulate and solidify competencies that define courses in both areas. Engineering lab courses emerged as a site to reinforce and build upon crucial skills from required writing courses. Together, we developed specific tools (assignment sheets, rubrics, and peer editing activities) to combine both groups’ pedagogical goals. This workshop will help participants to initiate a collaborative process for designing such artifacts to meet their own needs.
