"As a new professor, there were so many gems that I am taking from this workshop series. I was challenged and coached through the difficult work of creating meaningful assignments, connecting it all back to relevant objectives, and being able to convey that information in the most concise way possible. The course truly walked the walked (i.e., demonstrated each objective or principle taught with us as the student)."
"This workshop has been incredible in so many ways..Not only did I learn so much about writing, I also met so many great people, I learned so many tools and methods that will help me in my teaching journey."
