WAC Digital Initiatives: Writing Intensive Certification

Current and potential writing intensive (WI) course instructors now have the opportunity to complete the certification process online, in a fast-tracked method well-suited to some faculty members’ crammed schedules. Over the course of the academic year, this born-digital initiative offers faculty a space in which they can view past workshops; discuss how WAC principles work in their own classrooms and disciplines; and submit and share resources. After participating in this project, faculty will submit a portfolio of revised materials to complete the certification process.
