Writing and Learning in the Business Classroom: The Workshop Approach
Fernsten, Linda; Fernsten, Jeffrey
Journal of Applied Research for Business Instruction, v6 n3 2008
A writing workshop is a pedagogical tool that can create a more productive experience for teachers and students alike. Business students who have used this technique with experienced instructors agree that a well-planned writing workshop can be useful for dispelling writing fears, furthering understanding of business communication skills, advancing learning in business area writing strategies, and expanding business discourse through targeted discussion and cooperative work. In this article, the authors discuss the process and benefits of the writing workshop. They describe what students say and do in a writing workshop and provide a few examples of business assignments that can work well in a workshop setting.
