Writing in the Disciplines Program

WID workshop

WID sponsors open programming for faculty and graduate students interested in thinking about the ways writing works in their teaching.

WID partners with schools and departments to identify how writing is central to achieving learning outcomes for their majors.

WID provides consultations for faculty to explore how writing works in their courses and assignments.

WID collaborates with the Writing Center and First-Year Writing & Information Literacy to ensure faculty and students get the support they need.

The Writing in the Disciplines Program works with faculty across campus in order to make writing a significant part of undergraduate students' education beyond the first-year experience.

Book Group: How People Learn
TBD (will meet 3-4x during the semester at participants' convenience)

Join colleagues to explore how how learning works and what faculty can do to help students learn more effectively. How People Learn, a report of the National Research Council, examines research into learning and its implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system.

Supporting Student Peer Review: Getting Students to Talk with Each Other About Their Work
Tuesday, September 20 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

How can students' responses to each other's writing help them develop as writers and improve the quality of the papers faculty receive? Thinking about peer review from the students' and faculty perspectives, we will look at how to design both in-class and out-of-class peer review activities that are really worth doing. Writing Center tutors will provide student perspectives on peer review.
