Faculty Consultations & Workshops

The Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Program's main objective is to support the culture of writing at Appalachian State by engaging with teachers in all disciplines. We also offer a variety of workshops about teaching writing. Many of these are open to the University, but we can also tailor workshops to the needs of specific faculty groups. 

Examples include:

  • Reducing faculty workload by assessing writing more efficiently and quickly
  • Addressing student error
  • Scaffolding writing assignments to support clarity and practice (TILT & UDL models)
  • Building meaningful assignments
  • Helping students choose a focus for their writing
  • Using eportfolios to document, reflect on, and assess learning
  • Conducting valuable, productive peer review
  • Teaching revision strategies and practices
  • Addressing attribution, documentation, and plagiarism
  • Using reflection to support deep, long-term learning
  • Incorporating low-stakes writing activities and writing-to-learn pedagogy
  • Getting students to read and apply teacher feedback
  • Engaging in effective collaborative writing
  • Teaching analysis
  • Constructing an argument
  • Employing audience, voice, and tone effectively
