Faculty Workshop | Inclusive Writing Across the Curriculum

Workshop Description Writing is a core literacy (i.e., a central function of intellectual and creative practice) essential to the development of key learning outcomes at RISD: critical thinking, effective communication, and the research skills necessary for the responsible articulation and contextualization of knowledge in particular disciplines. While the teaching of writing is recognized as a shared responsibility across the first-year Liberal Arts curriculum at RISD, it is also used as a way to promote and deepen learning across the disciplines at RISD. Yet shared values around writing, and strategies for promoting the transferability of writing skills/habits and rhetorical awareness are rarely discussed across the disciplines. This lack of shared values and strategies for using writing to support learning often results in a marked inconsistency and attendant lack of scaffolding in students’ experience of writing instruction during their time at RISD, disadvantaging students with weaker writing skills/backgrounds, while frustrating students wishing to focus on the development of writing skills.

Faculty workshop | Deconstructing the Library (Part 1)

Academic and public libraries are often celebrated as providers of valuable collections and services, an example of successful public infrastructure and a commons or third space. From the early days of textuality, libraries were depositories of priceless knowledge and artistry. Yet libraries also first emerged within imperial and colonial regimes, upholding their autocratic knowledge hierarchies and beliefs. Today’s libraries serve more people than ever, but many of the structural issues inherited from this past survive even as new concerns emerge. This workshop will introduce participants to several critical discussions underway in the library and information studies field, examining topics such as classification and knowledge organization, surveillance, access and the monetization of publishing. Participants will investigate ways of creating or adapting assignments to engage students in a more nuanced interaction with the library, encouraging critical approaches to library research and exploratory uses of the space and collection.
