Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

We strive to help Ohio State’s exemplary instructors navigate emerging challenges and opportunities in 21st century communication as they teach their students. To this end, we investigate best practices in the classroom and share research about how writing can be a powerful tool for teaching and learning.

WAC regularly consults with individual instructors about teaching and provides in-class workshops and resources for them and their students. In helping instructors create assignments and activities, WAC collects a wide range of resources that showcase the exceptional work of our colleagues from across OSU, which is available for public view on our resource wiki. Furthermore, we regularly facilitate workshops for groups across campus on topics related to writing instruction, assignment development, and assessment--to connect Ohio State’s best teachers with each other.
