CWP support for faculty development includes visits by noted specialists in composition pedagogy, in-house faculty workshops, and individual consultations.

The faculty development program is designed to enhance academic community by creating opportunities for professional collaboration and intellectual discovery.

CWP Handbook for Faculty: Our in-house handbook provides general information about writing pedagogy and working with your Writing Associate.

Moodle Site (Requires network ID and password): Faculty currently teaching CWP-affiliated courses are enrolled in our Moodle site (“CWP Faculty Development“), which includes additional resources on writing pedagogy like sample assignments and syllabi. Faculty can also be enrolled by request. Please email Tim Laquintano, CWP Director.

CWP In-House Library: In addition to resources available in Skillman Library, CWP keeps an in-house library of important publications in writing and writing pedagogy. These resources are available to faculty upon request. Please email Tim Laquintano for more information.

Workshops with Invited Guest Speakers: CWP hosts faculty development workshops led by distinguished experts on writing and writing pedagogy. Our guests have included David Bleich (University of Rochester), Joseph Harris (Duke University), and Jean Ferguson Carr (University of Pittsburgh).

In-House Workshops with CWP Directors: Each year, CWP runs a series of workshops for first-time FYS. These workshops focus on issues specific to teaching with writing in these courses. We also offer  1 or 2 workshops every semester on issues of interest to faculty teaching with writing in a broad range of courses across the curriculum.  Announcements about upcoming workshops are posted on our home page as well as on the Moodle site.

Individual Consultations: The CWP director and assistant director are available for consultations with individual faculty.
