Teaching with Writing is a five-day workshop, split over two weeks, that takes place annually in late May. Each day, the group meets in the morning for four hours of collaborative activities and discussion. During the ensuing “off days,” participants read assigned texts and draft course materials. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a final version of the syllabus and assignment handouts for one course. They will also have a plan for coaching and evaluating the assignments.
The workshop is open to all UND faculty planning to incorporate writing in a new course or revision of an existing course. Writing can be used in the course in a variety of ways—from quick, in-class journal entries to dissertation proposals and everything in between. Any course can qualify if the instructor plans to use writing as a learning tool, a learning outcome, or an assessment tool.
Participants receive a $500 stipend (subject to standard deductions) and workshop materials.The workshop is limited to 12 participants. Applications are reviewed as they are received, so it is advantageous to apply early. The application deadline is April 1st.

Building a Writing Enriched Program is a five-day workshop that takes place in early June. In the weeks leading up to the workshop, the WAC Program will conduct a survey of students and instructors in your program. We will also collect samples of syllabi, assignment sheets, and student writing from your program.
During the workshop, the group meets daily in the morning for four hours of collaborative activities and discussion. In the afternoon, participants read assigned texts; review survey data, syllabi, assignment sheets, and student writing. Working together, cohorts of three will use these materials to draft a programmatic writing plan, describing the kinds of writing valued in the discipline, places in the curriculum where writing can and should be taught, potential assignments, and rubrics for evaluation. Participants receive a $500 stipend (subject to standard deductions) and workshop materials.
The workshop is limited to four cohorts of three faculty members, for a total of 12 participants. Applications are reviewed as they are received, so it is advantageous to apply early. The application deadline is April 1st.
