Embedding academic literacy instruction in disciplinary courses: Laying the groundwork
Facilitated by Ron Sheese, Professor of Psychology and Writing, York University, Toronto, and Sophie Bury, Head, Peter F. Bronfman Business Library, York University, Toronto
We will present our ideas for the teaching and learning of academic reading, writing, and library research skills within the context of disciplinary courses. We will propose a number of ways in which instructors in disciplinary-based courses can design assignments to support the development of these skills. In particular, we will describe the recently developed on-line resource SPARK (Student Papers and Academic Research Kit) developed by the York Learning Commons and discuss how it might bridge the efforts of students and faculty to develop academic literacy.
