The Serie Center provides faculty with numerous opportunities to reflect on and invest in their writing pedagogy. We regularly utilize both our own colleagues and outside experts to lead hands-on workshops that familiarize faculty with best practices and strategies for cultivating students’ writing habits and skills. We develop tools and resources that faculty can use to enhance their teaching, such as Write Well Microlectures
