  • Yes, we sponsor an annual training event in August each summer. In addition, we provide ongoing consultation to faculty and departments who seek our assistance with WAC and WID. We have also reached out to departments undergoing departmental review under the auspices of WID. to These conversations are intended to facilitate an analysis of a students’ learning trajectory in a program and the ways in which written work – either formal or informal – might be used to facilitate the learning experience for students in the major. Faculty are also able to enroll in a workshop that launches them on a process of scholarly inquiry related to the writing pedagogy they have employed.
