Guide to Writing and Technology across the Curriculum: A Resource for Professors and Student Assistants.
Anstendig, Linda; Richie, Eugene
At Pace University there is a growing concern about the need for reinforcing writing across the disciplines, and about the need for integrating technology into teaching. At Pace a program has been designed in which professors and students working together will be able to take advantage of all that the university has to offer in technology, channeling their efforts to make a significant impact on curriculum while helping to maintain learning balances. In a National Endowment for the Humanities-funded Writing and Technology Assistants program, Pace will train a core of students to assist professors who wish to use computers to integrate technology and writing into their courses. This booklet, a resource for Pace's professors and students is also funded by NEH. The booklet is divided into the following sections: (1) Writing and Technology Assistants Program (Background; Description of NEH Pilot Program); (2) Principles of Writing across the Curriculum (What Is WAC?; Definition; Principles; Writing Assistants and Other WAC Models); (3) WAC Strategies and Techniques (Writing Activities; Revision and Feedback Techniques; Evaluation of Writing); (4) Technology across the Curriculum (Pace Computer Classrooms; Writing Technologies); (5) Specific Strategies and Models of Assignments for Writing with Technology; (6) Roles and Responsibilities of Student Assistants; (7) Assessment; (8) Resources (n=8); (9) Works Cited (n=12); and (10) Feedback Form.
