Writing As a Tool For Learning Across Disciplines

Writing to Learn

The “Across the Curriculum” series is inspired by the Integrated Cluster Model. The faculty and staff of the Lamson Academic Unit have collaborated to create this series, which aims to help us integrate curriculum, infuse Cluster Learning throughout our courses, and align our approaches so that students benefit from a cohesive academic experience.

In this session we explored the fundamental principle of writing across the disciplines that writing is a tool for learning. We explored various writing-to-learn practices, shared what is already working in our classrooms, and considered writing practices we could add to enhance student learning. Facilitated by Writing Center Director Jane Weber.
