“Deliberate practice is a very special form of activity that differs from mere experience and mindless drill… Unlike playful engagement with peers, deliberate practice is not inherently enjoyable. It does not involve a mere execution or repetition of already attained skills but repeated attempts to reach beyond one’s current level which is associated with frequent failures.”

Come hear Elizabeth Grove-White, who teaches professional writing at the University of Victoria, discuss strategies to enhance students’ deliberate writing practice without increasing the grading load.
