The Whys, Hows, and Lessons Learned from Our 780-Person Writing Class
Bowse, Robert; Lawrence, Holly
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v80 n1 p91-113 Mar 2017
Two business communication faculty share the story of teaching a 780-person business writing class. The article discusses the challenges of teaching such a large writing class. Challenges ranged from adopting a hybrid course model to hiring adjunct faculty for help with the task of grading. The article offers lessons learned, and recommends that one proceed with caution when considering a superlarge format for writing instruction. Both theory and experience are used to support this position.
