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.
