Detailed Description: The University of Minnesota’s Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing in the Disciplines activities are administrated by Teaching with Writing, a program housed within the new Center for Writing (formerly the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies). We sponsor and coordinate a 20-member faculty writing consultant committee, host campus-wide and department-specific workshops and consultations, and maintain a dense resource Web-site (http://writing.umn.edu) on which we post practical information for instructors who teach with writing and link to a wide assortment of discipline-specific syllabi, assignments, and resources. We also underwrite individual and departmental research into issues related to writing pedagogy, and post the monographs and technical reports fostered by these studies (http://cisw.cla.umn.edu/research_publications/index.htm#publications ). For more information, contact the Center’s Associate Director, Pamela Flash (flash001@umn.edu).
