The Campus Writing Program conducts a two-day faculty workshop to assist with the design and implementation of your writing intensive course. Once your course proposal has been approved by the Campus Writing Program, you will receive information on time, date and location of the workshop.
Indicate below if additional instructors are planned, but specific individuals have not yet been chosen. Check all that apply

Briefly describe the qualifications of the known graduate instructors, or planned qualifications if graduate instructors are still to be selected, bearing in mind that graduate students teaching honors courses should be advanced students with a record of excellent teaching.

Writing Intensive Course Information

The course consists of 3 projects and presentations (PowerPoint). Two of the projects are group (5/6 members), efforts and one project is completed and presented individually. The written component for each project will be much greater than 10 pages. The presentation (and subsequent questioning) will be before a panel of faculty/alumni engineers.

The assignments revolve around classical chemical engineering designs. The written report and presentation is to be jargon-free yet written for a technically competent audience. This includes possible patent research, previous production records, and economic/engineering optimization.

Writing Intensive Teaching

Instructor provided feedback
Oral presentation by student, followed by feedback
Peer review
 
The purpose of the 'individual' project is to identify and if necessary, correct deficiencies in the writing technique and presentation of students that may be masked in the 'group projects'.
The chemical engineering problems proposed to the students require optimization. No single design is correct and economic/engineering trade-offs must be proposed and justified both in the written and oral presentations.
There are 2 group projects and 1 individual project.
