9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The TWU Women’s Thought Leadership Program invites all faculty from the Denton, Dallas, and Houston campuses to join us for “Op-Eds across the Disciplines.” This workshop will provide an opportunity (1) to discuss the value of public scholarship for students at all levels and (2) hands-on experience to help you develop op-ed assignments in your classroom.

What you’ll gain

In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to discuss the value of public scholarship for students. We’ll provide examples of existing op-ed assignments for various disciplines before walking you through the process of creating your own assignment and rubric. You will leave the workshop with a drafted assignment and feedback from your workshop community. 

Why public scholarship? 

  • Help students develop transferable skills

  • Teach students to translate their academic expertise for non-academic audiences

  • Enrich students’ understanding of and ability to explain the value of your discipline 

  • Increase students’ capacity to be agents of change in their communities by providing opportunities to amplify their voices in public discourses

  • Strengthen students’ marketable skills, especially their writing and communication skills 

Who should sign up?

We welcome faculty at all ranks, including contingent faculty and graduate students who are or will soon be instructors of record. We also welcome faculty from all disciplines.
