ENGL 2351
In ENGL 2351, Introduction to Creative Writing, we have been refining the assessment process itself to
help us improve instruction and student learning in this already generally quite successful
course. Instructors have refined assessment with more specific rubrics in each assignment. Also, we are
improving teacher training and communication and support among the instructors by starting an an
email/discussion list for upcoming, current and former instructors, so that they may discuss, compare,
and finesse each others' teaching. This is useful because this course is generally taught by second-year
doctoral students, and thus there is a continual rotation of instructors. A discussion group of upcoming,
current and former instructors helps develop continuity and a broader range of experience to draw from.
