Writing Tips

Improving Disciplinary Writing is focused primarily on undergraduate, upper-division courses, including but not limited to writing intensive courses. As such, the faculty who will probably be most interested in the opportunities made available by the QEP are those who want to enhance content learning by implementing proven writing-to-learn techniques. Remember, too, that as students write more to enhance learning, they will become better writers and learners and all of us will benefit.
