AWAC & WAC Clearinghouse Call for Submissions for WAC Repository

AWAC and the WAC Clearinghouse are dedicated to supporting those interested in developing and sustaining WAC programs. Both also seek ways to make WAC efforts and strategies visible within and across all types of institutions. To that end, AWAC and the WAC Clearinghouse are excited to announce the development of a new collaboration: the creation of a digital repository of WAC resources pertaining to WAC pedagogy and administration. 

The AWAC Mentoring Committee in partnership with the WAC Clearinghouse invites you to consider contributing materials. Please help us provide AWAC members with the unique opportunity to view a variety of key materials created by experienced WAC leaders. 

This repository will feature pedagogical, workshop, programmatic, and professional development materials, including handouts, presentation slides, outlines of workshops or activities, email announcements or invitations, promotional marketing tools, videos, recordings of events, assignments, rubrics, and other suitable media. These will be made available via the WAC Clearinghouse website in August of 2021 for the WAC community to peruse and adapt for use in their own institutional context. Materials should reflect WAC principles and best practices in their design and recommended use and should have proven especially effective in initiating, developing, and sustaining WAC efforts in a particular institutional context. See the Repository Submission Form.

As you determine the materials you’d like to submit to the repository, please note the following information regarding intellectual property and guidelines for submission. While we appreciate your efforts to make resources available to the WAC community, we want to be sure these resources are shared ethically. In order to submit a resource for review, please be prepared to supply the following requirements:

  1. Permission from the host university approving sharing (written). 

  2. If the host institution has a preference for which sort of Creative Commons (CC) license to use, provide that recommendation. All CC license options can be found at Creative Commons about the Licenses resource 

If there is no preference, the Mentoring Events Committee recommends contributors consider a CC BY-SA: This license allows reusers to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format, so long as attribution is given to the creator. The license allows for commercial use. If you remix, adapt, or build upon the material, you must license the modified material under identical terms.
