Keynote Address: What Does it Mean to Assess Writing for a Better World?

In this talk, Dr. Asao B. Inoue will ask what it means to assess and grade college student writing for a better world. Participants will focus on the historical and structural ways that most academics judge and read language; teachers’ ways of assessing language; disciplines’ logics and ways with words; and most professions’ expectations of language use. Join us for this thought-provoking discussion about how higher education generally promotes literacy practices through assessment ecologies that are White supremacist, and defines an antiracist orientation toward our teaching and assessing.

This event is co-sponsored by Write@UGA & CTL and is open to all faculty and instructors.
