University undergraduate programs are gradually moving from a writing-intensive model, in which students expect to write in only two majors courses, to a writing across the curriculum model, in which writing is emphasized and valued in most/all courses in their program curriculum.
Professors Bryna Siegel Finer, director of Liberal Studies English, and Edel Reilly, director of IUP Liberal Studies, will describe the process of developing a Department Writing Plan, which helps departments consider how writing is valued and used in the professional discipline in order to work instruction into the existing curriculum to incorporate desired writing skills and abilities.
