Department Section Description: 

This course is designed to support GEs teaching in the University of Oregon’s Composition Program for the first time. We will discuss ways to foster an effective and inclusive learning environment for your students as well as refine understanding of the Composition Program pedagogy and learning outcomes and familiarize ourselves with the resources available to teachers and students of writing on campus. Teaching is a craft and a labor, and so our course is also an inquiry. What do effective and inclusive learning environments look like? What is the individual teaching persona you want to present in your classroom communities? How do we best navigate university, department, and program expectations with our unique goals and with student expectations for their education? There are no single answers to any of these questions, and so as a community of teachers we will discuss best practices and philosophies.
