Dr. Bradley Hughes Writing Center Director and Writing Across the Curriculum Director, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Based on a study of faculty participating in a learning community on Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) concepts, this talk reports on what faculty learn but also what they miss about teaching with writing in their home disciplines. WAC programs encourage disciplinary faculty to understand the rhetorical dimensions of their disciplines and to develop carefully designed and research-supported pedagogical methods that help students and faculty succeed with writing assignments. This presentation will present new research about which WAC concepts disciplinary faculty learn and activate after participating in a WAC program’s interdisciplinary, semester-long seminar and learning community for faculty and graduate-student instructors at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
