Writing as a College-Wide Concern by Roald D Tweet( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
English department members at Augustana College decided to make writing a college-wide concern. They began by attempting to change the perceptions of the faculty, including that of the English department, which consisted of members trained entirely in literature rather than in composition. The approach to the rest of the faculty began with an explanation of the potential of the reading and writing lab and an invitation to them to attend lab sessions. They were then asked to identify their students with problems and to refer them to the lab. In addition, an English faculty member was sent to a writing institute for a year so that he might return and serve as a consultant to all departments. Next, a workshop was organized for faculty members from various departments to discuss writing theory and curricular change. It included lectures by outside experts, outlines of freshman writing courses, samples of student writing from various departments, and agreement on what makes good writing. Some changes after a year were: writing lab use jumped from 20 students a quarter to 50 students a week, two departments began writing courses and others planned to do so, English department composition course enrollments went up, and a faculty newsletter was created containing notices of recent developments in writing, new courses planned by various departments, and interesting ideas and writing assignments.
