Writing Across the Curriculum Fellowship Program

A joint initiative between the Office of the Vice President, Academic and Provost (VPAP) and the Writing & Learning Centre (WLC), the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Fellowship Program, presents an exciting opportunity to contribute to curricular innovation and the development of a writing culture at OCAD U.

Goals:

  • support the development of authentic writing pedagogy for art and design education;
  • advance teaching practices that support English language learning;
  • deepen individual faculty members’ and writing/language-learning specialists’ understanding of writing instruction in the creative disciplines;
  • develop a network of faculty and writing/language-learning specialists who provide leadership in the use of writing to facilitate student learning at OCAD U through meaningful, evidence-based practice.

WAC Fellows receive up to $3,000 in funding to support research activities associated with the Fellowship. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and priority will be given to faculty teaching a WAC-designated course.

For more information see our Call for Proposals, deadline October 15, 2018, or contact wac@ocadu.ca.
