Writing Across the Curriculum

Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop

The Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) workshop began in the winter of 1999. Over the years, this workshop has received rave reviews from participants, several of who have said it was the best faculty development program they have ever attended. This workshop involves 10-12 faculty members from across the university who gather to discuss how writing can aid learning in the disciplines and how instructors can use writing more effectively in their classes.

The group meets thirteen times over the terms. Participants will be expected to read background material, produce new course material, share this material with the workshop participants, and participate actively in discussions. Those participating in the workshop will derive several benefits:

  • Become better teachers by using writing to increase learning and gain a better understanding of strategies for using writing more effectively.
  • Develop new instructional material to use in their classes and gather new ideas for improving students' learning and performance.
  • Work with a group of interested, motivated, well-respected colleagues, forming new friendships in a relaxed, informal setting.

How do you participate in this workshop?

Invitations to participate are sent to all UD faculty and staff through email the semester before the each workshop begins.
