Join us in person to hear award-winning author and former professor James M. Lang, PhD, explain how to draw upon our hard-won wisdom as teachers to create effective learning experiences for a wider and more public audience. Hosted by the Office of the Provost.

University faculty have hard-earned knowledge and expertise that could benefit learners outside their courses and their campuses. Faculty who would like to write for more public audiences can draw upon their pedagogical knowledge to create effective learning experiences for readers. This approach draws lessons from Jim Lang’s work as a book series acquisition editor, his multiple books aimed at general academic audiences, and his dozens of published magazine and newspaper essays. In this workshop, participants will learn about the power of questions to drive writing projects, the use of evidence in public writing, and the importance of developing a unique writing voice.
