During this fall’s Faculty Development Day, we welcomed Dr. Michael Neal, Associate Professor of English at Florida State University, to speak about writing as a powerful tool for learning content in any discipline, and we explored many ways in which we can incorporate writing across the curriculum (WAC). Dr. Neal’s presentation highlighted the types of writing that are most valuable for our students and provided practical strategies for the use of writing to learn techniques that can be implemented into any course. The session also offered multiple opportunities for faculty to reflect on their practice and share ideas with colleagues.
Resources for Writing Across the Curriculum
For those who are interested in learning more about Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC), we’ve added “WAC” Resources on our Center website that provides links to resources for strategies as well as the scholarship for incorporating more valuable writing experiences into your courses.
