Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop

The First Year Experience offers an annual writing across the curriculum workshop for campus faculty during the summer.  The workshop will offer faculty the opportunity to meet in a small group setting with colleagues to discuss and explore the how each of our disciplines views the process of writing,  teaching of writing across our many diverse disciplines, and how we can incorporate writing as a learning tool in our classrooms.  While it is supported by the FYE program, the workshop is open to all faculty on campus and will not focus solely on writing in the First Year.  We will also be offering shorter one day workshops on specific topics during the academic year.  The program is directed by Chris Warnick.

How does WAC benefit faculty?

Read the full version of the 2016 WAC Report
  • “…It changed EVERYTHING about how I structure writing in my classroom. I changed how I think about structuring assignments, how I think about learning outcomes, how I consider my feedback, how I encourage scaffolding, how I use peer review, how I encourage revision, etc.”
  • "I had previously reserved most writing assignments for upper-level courses. I am now incorporating more writing in lower level (i.e. first and second year students) classes, with an emphasis on low-stakes writing and writing for revision.”
  • "I am more aware of the differences in various disciplines regarding writing and research expectations and am more knowledgeable when conveying the information to my students.”
