Whose Line Is It, Anyway? Community Authorship and Collaborative Writing

September 20, 2018, 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Students


The archetypal academic writer is the solitary scholar, sitting in a garret office, struggling over the latest manuscript. The reality, of course, is much different. In many academic contexts,  it is increasingly common that writers create documents collaboratively.

In the classroom, however, collaborative assignments have always been a thorny issue—including how to assign writing teams and how to evaluate the work fairly.  Collaborations also raise ethical issues relating to authorship. We’ll look at the benefits of collaborative assignments, and how to make them work in the classroom.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on September 19, 2018 - 5:00pm.
