UST WAC goes International
Early this summer, from June 7-9, 2012, a contingent of five UST faculty participated in the 11th International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference in Savannah, Georgia. Dr. Catherine Craft-Fairchild (English), Dr. Sherry Jordon (Theology), Dr. Cheri Shakiban (Mathematics), Dr. James Heyman (Marketing) and Dr. Erika Scheurer (English) presented papers, got lots of useful ideas about writing across the curriculum programs and courses from faculty across the United States as well as the world.

Fall Writing across the Curriculum (WAC) Workshops
The goal of the Writing Across the Curriculum initiative is to fundamentally transform how teaching and learning happen at UST. Faculty who attend our WAC seminars learn how to use writing in their courses in strategic, effective, and interesting ways. Because writing engages students in the course subject matter as nothing else can, WAC pedagogy leads to "deep learning," learning that goes well beyond memorizing something for a test and promptly forgetting it: learning with relevance and staying power.
