Addison, Joanne; Sharon James McGee. (2010). Writing in high school/writing in college: Research trends and future directions. College Composition and Communication 62.1, 147-179.
Outlines major large-scale writing research projects done within the ten years preceding article publication. Using student responses to the National Survey of Student Engagement’s (NSSE) 'writing-specific' questions, Addison and McGee identified five scales that 'describe the quality of undergraduate writing and establish that certain types of writing are substantially related to NSSE’s deep learning subscales, especially higherorder thinking and integrative learning,' through investigating: pre-writing activities, instructor articulation of clear expectations, the assignment of higher-order writing tasks, good instructor practices such as student collaboration, sample review and opportunities for writing practice, and evidence of student use of integrated media like the inclusion of visual content in their writing. Upon comparison of the aggregate data from the studies referenced above using these five scales, Addison and McGee found that college and high school faculty across the curriculum only diverged in their practices in terms of assigning higher-order writing tasks and using integrated media . Yet, college faculty tended to provide fewer opportunities for peer review and 'informal, exploratory' writing. Alternately, student and teacher as well as instructor-workplace perceptions and expectations about writing were far less congruent. In response, calls for the following future actions: the creation of 'WAC-centered vertical curriculum' between high schools and colleges that concretely emphasizes the transfer of skills related to not only essay but also narrative and critical research-based writing , including interdisciplinary rhetorical analysis and workplace genres; the establishment of future research partnerships between large organizations like NSSE and WPA jointly guided by the Committee on Research and Committee on Professional Visibility and Databases within CCCC; and the formation of an online repository by NCTE/CCCC to archive the raw data and tools used in writing studies as a resource for upcoming research and advocacy efforts [Rachel E.

Barber, John F.. (2000). All watched over by machines of loving grace: Promoting cybernetic ecology in writing classrooms. [Link]. Academic.Writing 1.
Howard Rheingold envisions 'cybernetic architectures' or worlds and ways to be in them (88). John Markoff writes about the creation of 'post-textual literacy' based on digital audio-visual rather than textual thinking that will offer us the opportunity to manipulate intertextuality in ways never before possible using only words and traditional face-to-face educational contexts (5). Building on these images, it is not a stretch to posit that computers and fiction and / or poetry classrooms can sustain each other in a 'cybernetic ecology' that might transcend the time, space, and place boundaries of the traditional classroom, provide access to far-flung resources, promote broader collaborative opportunities among colleagues, and orient such collaboration toward a broad spectrum of humanistic endeavor. The implications are not only interesting and challenging but necessary to address. [WAC Clearinghouse]

Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV has served as the military's media spokesperson for the Multi-National Force--Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom and as commander of the Army's Combined Arms Center (CAC) and Command and General Staff College (CGSC). These roles, as well as this three-star general's promotion of the Army's rhetorical concept of strategic communications and public advocacy for soldiers' use of digital media and online social networking tools, suggested a combination of interests in education, rhetoric, and technology uniquely appropriate to Kairos and to this special issue in particular.

Daugherty, Jack; Tennyson O'Donnell (Eds.). (2015). Web writing: Why and how for liberal arts teaching and learning. Ann Arbor, MI: University of Michigan Press.
The essays in Web Writing respond to contemporary debates over the proper role of the Internet in higher education, steering a middle course between polarized attitudes that often dominate the conversation. The authors argue for the wise integration of web tools into what the liberal arts does best: writing across the curriculum. All academic disciplines value clear and compelling prose, whether that prose comes in the shape of a persuasive essay, scientific report, or creative expression. The act of writing visually demonstrates how we think in original and critical ways and in ways that are deeper than those that can be taught or assessed by a computer. Furthermore, learning to write well requires engaged readers who encourage and challenge us to revise our muddled first drafts and craft more distinctive and informed points of view. Indeed, a new generation of web-based tools for authoring, annotating, editing, and publishing can dramatically enrich the writing process, but doing so requires liberal arts educators to rethink why and how we teach this skill, and to question those who blindly call for embracing or rejecting technology.

Abstract: While students learn valuable skills by composing multimodal works, these assignments can also help students master traditional writing genres by defamiliarizing some of the "design choices" they make when writing. Requiring students to revise a traditional written essay into a video accomplishes two key goals in both lower level and advanced writing classes. It updates writing curricula to provide students experience with the kind of writing they will do in other classes. Furthermore, reflecting on the revision process enhances student appreciation for the importance of clear prose, careful exposition, and logical organization.

This article describes a course with three primary goals: (1) to help students reflect on the complex relationship between humans and technology (developed within the cultural and historical context of the twentieth century) as portrayed in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and films that focuses on technology topics; (2) to reflect—broadly, deeply, and from humanistic perspectives—on their own responsibility for shaping this relationship in contemporary contexts; and (3) to provide opportunities within which to practice composing this relationship in personal terms—expressing a personal understanding of humans and computers in language and images, poetry and prose, print and new-media contexts. In such an instructional context—while acquiring facility in making meaning within digital communication environment—students from different academic majors developed a critical perspective on the tools they used and became increasingly conscious about their power, as social agents, to shape the relationship between humans and computers.

Recent advances in computer and computer-network technologies make it possible to consider an alternative to the indirect, top-down pedagogy used in most writing-across-the-curriculum (WAC) programs (e.g., a pedagogy that views faculty as the primary audience for WAC training). Drawing on the results of a 4-year effort to establish a campus-wide, computer-supported writing environment, we suggest that computer networks and specifically designed instructional software (e.g., multimedia instructional materials and interactive writing exercises) can provide the basis for a network-supported writing-center-based WAC program. Our discussion focuses on development of network communication tools and hypermedia courseware to support WAC. [WAC Clearinghouse]

At MIT in the 1990's, data from two sources, a study of the writing ability of a small group of randomly selected MIT juniors correlated to their overall academic performance and a survey of alumni from various years provided the major motivation for the development by MIT faculty and administration of a very ambitious Communications-in-the-Disciplines Program. The study of random juniors demonstrated that student writing ability had no effect on overall student grade-point-average, thereby giving students no immediate incentive to work on improving their writing skills within the context of an extremely intensive MIT undergraduate curriculum. The alumni survey displayed a significant disparity between the importance alumni attached to communication and leadership skills and the alumni's low estimation of MIT's contribution to the development of these skills. Once the new curriculum was in place, however, assessing its effectiveness became much more complex. The end result was an assessment that, given all the cross currents, was successful primarily in raising consciousness and acceptance levels for integrating instruction and practice in writing and speaking throughout the undergraduate curriculum.

Shea and her colleagues describe a WAC project, born of their university's commitment to writing and ubiquitous computing, that engaged nearly 70 faculty members in WAC training over four years. The authors describe the project and its results, emphasizing three case studies of faculty members from psychology, mathematics, and nursing. (Published February 21, 2006) [WAC Clearinghouse]

Sherman situates WAC in a broader movement towards “Computer Supported Intentional Learning Environments.” He calls for all disciplines, particularly his own, Psychology, to adopt these online environments. He gives examples of these, including Blackboard, and one he developed for his own department. Sherman argues from a Postmodern position, saying that now more than ever students are aware of difference in their lives and in the university, and tend to distrust information from the teacher presented as fact. If it is presented as part of a forum, in which they can see ideas and conflict and join the debate, the knowledge they take away will seem “real” to them. [WAC Clearinghouse]

The following statistics are derived from the more than 1300 responses (50% return rate) to the U.S./Canada survey undertaken by Tara Porter and Chris Thaiss as part of the International WAC/WID Mapping Project. The online survey itself is closed as of July 1, 2008. Statistical results based on earlier readings of the data have been reported at conferences in 2007 and 2008. Articles based on the survey data are scheduled to appear beginning in 2009. If you wish more information about these publications, please write to Chris Thaiss (cjthaiss@ucdavis.edu) or Tara Porter (tsporter@ucdavis.edu). If you do not know if your institution replied to this survey, please contact Tara Porter (tsporter@ucdavis.edu). As more statistics are derived from the complete data set, we will post them to this website, as appropriate. Please keep in mind that the following statistics represent the most minimal analysis of the data. We are posting them in this unanalyzed form at the request of those who have attended recent presentations. Our explanation of terms, methods, and materials and our interpretation of the data will occur in the planned articles and in future conference presentations. Meanwhile, if you have questions about the survey or the results you see here, please write to us. You will note the reference made to the 1987 survey by Susan McLeod and Susan Shirley. This is the only other large-scale survey of WAC/WID activity in the U.S. and Canada. Results were reported in: McLeod, Susan and Susan Shirley.

Research on Activity/Initiatives Worldwide Devoted to Student Writing in Disciplines Begun in 2006, this project aims to identify, compile, analyze, and facilitate activity and interest in writing in the disciplines in higher education around the world. We are interested both in first-language and English-language initiatives. We are also interested in graduate-level initiatives, but we pay primary attention to undergraduate, college-university activities focused in disciplines, as well as academic writing centers or similar services devoted to working with students and faculty/staff in and across disciplines. The Project is sponsored in part by the International Network of WAC Programs (INWAC). [From site, accessed July 2008]
