Building a community around writing instruction at WWU
The Writing Instruction Support (WIS) program provides direct assistance to faculty who are teaching writing courses or who incorporate writing into their courses.
WIS has three main functions:
1) Provide information about writing course requirements and the best practices for teaching and assessing writing.
2) Sponsor instructional activities such as the annual faculty writing instruction workshop-retreat which serves as a foundational experience for those teaching writing and the writing research fellowship opportunities for instructors and students to study writing instruction practices.
3) Offer resources on teaching writing in print, multi-media and online.
In addition to facilitating the Patterns of Error in Academic Writing workshop in conjunction with Writing Instruction Support, Graduate Research Assistant, Lee Olsen is available to help students and faculty with any writing or editing projects they have.Lee is available Tuesdays from 9:30-11:30 am and Wednesdays from 2-4 pm or by appointment.
