McIntyre Medical Building : 3655 promenade Sir William Osler Montreal Quebec Canada , H3G 1Y6

Integrating well designed writing assignments into undergraduate courses can increase students’ engagement and promote critical thinking. Yet, many instructors shy away from including these assignments because of the extra workload required to mark them. During this workshop, we will discuss guidelines for designing short written assignments that make students think more and write less. We will provide examples from McGill professors in fields as diverse as Science, Arts, Music, Law and Engineering to illustrate the range of possibilities.
