First Fridays for Graduate Students: Getting Students to Feel Comfortable with Academic Discourse and Entering the Academic Community

UW students come from diverse backgrounds with varying levels of comfort with academic discourse, yet part of our work as teachers is to facilitate their effective engagement with the academic community. In this workshop, we will explore different strategies for introducing your students to the concepts and practices of academic discourse and become active members of our academic communities.  Come with your questions and your challenges as we explore how to apply these strategies in different situations and disciplinary contexts.
