Writing Support for Educators and Faculty

The Writing Hub works with faculty and educators from across campus, combining your disciplinary expertise with our knowledge of writing pedagogy to create writing experiences that catalyze deep learning and authentic engagement with course material. 

For Your Students

  • We can help you explore ways to connect your students to available services and programs at the Writing Hub and the Teaching + Learning Commons

For Your Teaching

  • Designing writing assignments for deep learning: From individual assignments to course or curriculum re-design, we combine expertise with partners across campus to create writing experiences that foster deeper learning and more student engagement.
  • Effective practices for grading and feedback: We explore what feedback students really need and how to minimize grading time through targeted, specific feedback practices 
  • Doctoral student advising: We work with faculty advisors and departments to develop programs and practices for supporting doctoral-level writers.
  • Department-level assessment and initiatives: We can provide both expertise and infrastructure to support curriculum mapping and program innovations that expand or improve student writing in your department, undergraduate major, or graduate program. 

For Your Writing

  • We believe that keeping faculty engaged and reflective in their own writing processes enhances their work with graduate and undergraduate students. We offer several faculty-oriented services to help you make progress on your writing projects and reflect on your writing process.
