Designing Professional Learning to Support Student Success: Lessons from the Faculty Writing Fellows Seminar
Perrow, Margaret
College Teaching, v66 n4 p190-198 2018
The Faculty Writing Fellows Seminar was designed to develop university instructors' skill in writing instruction: The 2015-16 professional development project offered faculty at Southern Oregon University a chance to read writing-pedagogy research, collaboratively develop their teaching practices, and--most importantly--put themselves in the shoes of student writers. The seminar had a positive impact on instructors' teaching and students' writing. Instructors showed growth in confidence, empathy, knowledge, and instruction. Their students' essays outscored essays by students in nonparticipating instructors' classes. The study argues for professional development that simultaneously builds pedagogical knowledge and skills and incorporates emotional and psychosocial aspects of teaching and learning.
