Faculty workshop | Inclusive Writing Pedagogies
What does inclusion mean when teaching writing in the studio or classroom? This workshop is designed to guide participants through various critical and historical perspectives on writing curricula, assignment/exercise design, assessment and the relationship between writing and thinking. Faculty from all programs who assign writing or encourage students to use writing in their creative processes are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Tom Doran teaches courses on comics art, natural history, poetry, transnational and multiethnic American Studies, queer literatures, the history of science and ecology, and various forms of writing. He has a background in inclusive and student-centered writing pedagogies, writing across the curriculum, environmental rhetoric, and the history of composition curricula in American colleges and universities. Over the last 13 years, he has taught academic, professional, and creative writing at six different postsecondary institutions, developing a pedagogy that emphasizes informal writing, multimodal composition, collaborative writing, blended learning, and hands-on content creation. He earned his PhD in English from UC Santa Barbara, focusing on environmental discourse and the rhetoric of animal protection among indigenous and Euro-colonial naturalists in the eighteenth and nineteenth-century Americas. Before earning his PhD, he was an MA Teaching Fellow in SUNY New Paltz's Composition Program, where he taught first-year writing, regularly contributed to faculty-led workshops on writing pedagogy, participated in curriculum design and assessment, and tutored multilingual learners in college writing.
