Title: Incorporating writing in your discipline

Abstract: Students’ writing skills can greatly hinder or enhance their ability to convey their understanding of the subject matter of a course. Furthermore, writing can facilitate the learning process itself. In this seminar we will introduce a rationale for writing across the curriculum, review common problems with student writing, and analyze assignments from various disciplines designed to develop different skills.
