On-Line Resources and Their Transformation of the Academy for Students and Faculty.
Baker, Edith
This paper explains Bradley University's (Peoria, Illinois) neophyte Writing across the Curriculum Program, which has been in existence since December of 1997. Noting that the Program started with no outside money and with just a dream of developing undergraduate students' fluencies in their writing, the paper states that the goal was to encourage and develop faculty use of writing and critical thinking in all disciplines at Bradley. It states that the Program's developers wanted particularly to encourage metacognition. According to the paper, the workshop/seminar system was chosen for the Program. The paper recounts that an online system (a Writing across the Curriculum Website for Bradley) was developed in September of 2000. The paper discusses and critiques both the workshop/seminar system and the online system. Contains 14 references. (NKA)
