Technologies are reshaping the contexts, media, and practices of writing on campuses and in the professions, and they offer WAC/WID instructors both challenges and possibilities. This special issue of ATD explores how and why WAC/WID initiatives incorporate writing technologies, take advantage of emergent forms of writing instruction, and adapt to evolving disciplinary and cultural norms for writing.
