Event description

Description

Do you wish your students showed more disciplinary mastery in their writing assignments? If so, come to our interactive workshop where we will demonstrate how Generative Knowledge Interviewing (GKI) can be an effective tool to help students more clearly articulate and organize the core concepts and ideas of any discipline. Through story telling and reflection, students will be able to identify their tacit knowledge of their discipline and identify how they can participate in scholarly conversations. During the workshop, participants will conduct a GKI to interrogate their current writing assignments. Then, participants will brainstorm how to adapt current assignments using GKI to better achieve desired learning outcomes.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

• Define Generative Knowledge Interview and how to facilitate it.

• Apply GKI to writing assignments

• Create or modify an existing assignment using GKI

Presented by Kate Flom Derrick and Lauri Dietz (University Center for Writing-based Learning).
