Learn new teaching techniques. Deepen students’ learning. Elevate their writing. Register for the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Academy.

University Writing's WAC program empowers instructors of all ranks to teach high-impact, discipline-specific, writing-enriched courses and curricula. In this WAC Academy, teams of faculty, staff and administrative professionals will work through a collaborative process of learning, reflection, planning, creation and assessment of writing, with the goal of deepening students’ learning of disciplinary content. Participants will learn how to use writing to teach significant disciplinary concepts, clarify disciplinary expectations for student writing, design and scaffold meaningful assignments and integrate peer and instructor feedback. Teams from multiple departments will have the opportunity to share ideas and receive feedback, in an interdisciplinary space. As always, University Writing defines writing broadly, including assignments such as research papers, lab reports, case studies, reflective writing and ePortfolios.
