Regarded as one of the most invaluable skills students develop throughout their academic careers, writing continues to be considered a core competency across many areas of study. While many may assume writing instruction comes primarily from composition courses, Writing Across the Curriculum advocates suggest that writing should be a quintessential part of most university courses. As a movement, WAC supports that writing is an instructional tool that spans disciplines and engages learners in active, student-centered environments. Faculty who adopt writing in their courses often employ such techniques as writing to learn, low-stakes written assessments, and discipline-specific writing exercises.
With the success of our Fall 2019 Faculty Development Day and our Teaching and Learning Conversations groups, all focused on Writing Across the Curriculum, we’ve dedicated this space to the sharing of resources that may be helpful for anyone who is interested in learning more about WAC.
