WID Writing Handbook Project

WID Writing Handbook Project

Have you ever considered compiling your suggestions on the writing component of your course into a formal guide or handbook for your students? That’s what ten GW faculty members have done, thanks to a new funding initiative sponsored by the WID Program.  This program is designed to encourage new and continuing WID faculty to reflect systematically about writing in their field and to provide practical, written guidance for undergraduate students regarding the goals, purposes, methods, and standards of research and writing in their discipline and in their WID courses. Participating faculty members attend two workshops, draft a 7-15 page handbook and receive feedback from colleagues before submitting a final e-version to the WID Director. After completing their projects, they receive a cash stipend for their efforts. Faculty who are interested in participating in future workshops should contact Professor Christopher Sten ( csten@gwu.edu ) for further information.
