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 Integrated Research & Writing Workshop Series and 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.
The Research-Writing Studio, new home to Research Consultation and the Writing Center, is both a place and a service that offers students support with their academic work related to research and writing. Visit the Research-Writing Studio website for more information on their resources and services.
Now that WIS has its program office in Wilson Library 265, we have a collection of books and videos on display and available for circulation. Come browse our ever growing collection and let Carmen know if you have recommendations for review or purchase, firstname.lastname@example.org.
