Faculty Writing Project

This project is designed to help faculty across the University make writing a more meaningful part of their teaching. Participating faculty collaborate over a semester with the coordinator of writing instruction on the development of a writing assignment or writing project and strategies for responding to student writing. Participants meet as a group three times a semester to discuss issues and concerns pertinent to the use and instruction of writing in their courses.

Eligibility
Fall Semester: Faculty teaching FYS courses
Spring Semester: Priority is given to faculty who participated in the Writing Across the Curriculum or Writing in FYS workshops, but all faculty are eligible.

Resources
Faculty receive a stipend for participating in the writing project. In the past, the stipend has ranged from $750 to $1,000. After the initial meeting(s) with the coordinator of writing instruction to develop a writing assignment or project, participants receive half of the stipend; the balance is provided after completing the pilot.

Timeline
Call for applications for each program goes out during the prior semester.
