Recommendation Letters Made Easy and Equitable: When and How to Write a Persuasive Letter (and when to say “no.”)
Interested in writing better letters of recommendation for your students or peers– and wondering how to do this effectively and efficiently? Join Dr. Juli Parish, Director of the Writing Center and Teaching Professor of Writing, and Dr. Lindsay Lawton, Director of Scholar Development and Fellowship Advising, and Alison Staudinger, Director of Faculty Development and Career Advancement for a practice-based workshop on writing letters that are better and easier. We’ll also look at common ways that implicit bias can sneak into letters and harm students. We’ll also think about the workload issues related to letters and how you might navigate them as a department or individual.
Bring something to write with, digital or paper and, if you have one, a recommendation letter you have written or a prompt for one that you expect to write.
