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.

What to Say When? Timing Feedback for Writers
Tuesday, October 18 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

If most of the energy spent on responding to student writing happens at the end of the semester, its impact may be limited. Yet the alternative - multiple drafts of assignments, each with feedback - is often not sustainable. Explore ways to evaluate when feedback and response is possible, with an eye toward creating a rhythm that works.
