IWT July 2023 Weeklong Workshops

IN-PERSON at Bard College, July 9–14, 2023

The Center for Liberal Arts and Sciences Pedagogy (CLASP), a project of the Bard College Institute for Writing & Thinking (IWT) invites faculty from OSUN institutions to apply for a fully-funded slot in our in-person July Weeklong Workshops. The July Weeklong Workshops will run from July 9 to 14, 2023 at Bard’s Annandale-on-Hudson NY Campus. A full list of workshop offerings for July is available on the IWT website (please do not register for a workshop through the IWT website–OSUN faculty must apply through CLASP).

During the week, teachers live in private dorm rooms on the Bard campus, eat meals together, and enjoy the beautiful setting and lively atmosphere of Annandale-on-Hudson in the summer. Workshop groups meet for 14 sessions, beginning Sunday evening, July 10. Subsequently, groups meet three times a day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., except Wednesday and Friday, the final day, when workshops conclude at 1 p.m. There will be special programming and events exclusively for OSUN participants.


Frequently asked questions:

What does fully-funded mean? If you are selected to attend, CLASP will cover all costs associated with your participation in the July Weeklong Workshops, including travel, visa expenses, food, housing, and workshop fees. CLASP will cover as many costs as possible directly, and will reimburse participants upon their arrival at Bard for costs that are impossible to cover directly.

How will I get to Bard? CLASP will work closely with participants to apply for visas, book flights, and make all other travel arrangements. You should anticipate arriving in New York on July 8, and departing on July 15.

Where will I stay while I’m at Bard? Participants will stay in dorm rooms on campus at Bard College. You will not have to share a dorm room, though it is likely that you will share a bathroom with other faculty in rooms next to yours. The rooms themselves are fairly basic, though there is always a lively atmosphere with the dozens of other faculty who will be staying in the same building as you!

What workshop should I choose? Please feel free to choose any of the workshops listed on the July Weeklong Workshops page. If you’ve never taken an IWT workshop before, we recommend starting with Writing and Thinking or Writing to Learn.

Who else will be on campus? More than one hundred teachers from across the US and the world participate in the July Weeklong Workshops every year. In addition to faculty participating in the same workshops as you, there will also be a large number of OSUN faculty participating in the CLASP Fellows Program and the OSUN Global Debate Network workshop. The July Weeklong Workshops are an excellent opportunity to connect with faculty from across OSUN.
