Writing & Information Literacy in the Disciplines (WILD)

The Writing and Information Literacy in the Disciplines (WILD) initiative is the second phase of the General Education Committee’s work on writing and information literacy.

The WILD initiative identifies four outcomes for participating departments:
  • Identification of disciplinary priorities for writing and information literacy
  • Student learning outcomes based on those priorities
  • Curricular map of where those outcomes are taught
  • Plan for assessing and refining the outcomes
The WILD process envisions four key meetings for departments:
  • Meeting to review the survey outcomes
  • Meeting to review draft outcomes and begin curricular mapping
  • Meeting to plan assessment
  • Meeting to review work and make future plans in light of available resources

Thanks to the support of the Davis Foundation we have stipends available for participating departments. Contact us at for more information.
