Infusing Writing in the Curriculum

The UB Curriculum encourages faculty to infuse writing instruction across the disciplines.

Recognizing that conventions, genres and values about writing are disciplinary-specific, representatives of the CEW can consult with you about how to incorporate writing instruction into your curriculum in ways that don’t crowd out your content and that don’t significantly increase your workload. We can help with syllabus and assignment development with an eye toward making your students effective written communicators in your discipline. We also can present workshops on pedagogical topics such as responding to student writing, using informal writing as a learning tool and assessment practices.
