End Date

Description

This panel, which will include professors from multiple disciplines, will discuss graduate level writing and the importance of disciplinary-specific backward mapping. The concept of backward mapping is a critical process at the macro level for shaping curriculum and at the micro level for intentionally teaching graduate-level students how to write in the specific genres of their disciplines. The Writing Across the Curriculum director will present context about the role of intentionally teaching writing at the graduate level (as opposed to simply assigning it), which is an active conversation at the national level. The Writing Center director will discuss approaches to including the Center in disciplinary expectations at the graduate level.
