WAC Workshop Series

The Writing Across the Curriculum program hosts a series of writing workshops for faculty interested in enhancing their writing pedagogy. Workshops come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so please look for one that might fit your needs.

The Writing Exchange

The Writing Exchange is a series of brief, informal workshops that focus on discreet issues in writing. Participants can expect to briefly discuss a topic and leave the workshop with a set of teaching strategies to consider.
All Writing Exchange workshops will be held from 3:00-4:20 pm in KHD 4050.
