Call for Applications for WAC-Faculty and WAC-Program Awards, 2011-2012

1. WAC Faculty Award 2011-2012

The Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing across the Disciplines (WAC) program at CSI invites faculty to apply for a WAC Faculty Award for the year 2011-2012. The award consists of the assistance of a doctoral graduate student writing fellow who will work with the faculty member throughout the year and a stipend of up to $1,000. Writing fellows will assist faculty with matters such as syllabus and assignment development, integration of writing into the classroom, research on WAC-related matters, technology, and other matters. Faculty will work with their writing fellow and the coordinator throughout the year to accomplish their goals.

Faculty who are interested in integrating writing into their classes, in exploring writing as a learning tool, in WAC-driven curricular development, or other WAC related projects are encouraged to apply with a year-long project. We especially welcome proposals that will promise a lasting impact.

Applications should include:

-A proposal of three to five double-spaced pages that details the project, including its impact after the award year, and the final product anticipated

– A current CV

Participating faculty will be asked to participate in some WAC-related activities throughout the year and will be expected to submit a final report at the end of their award period.

Please send proposals to: Hildegard Hoeller, Professor of English, WAC Coordinator at hilhllr@aol.com by Friday, May 20, 2011. 

2. WAC Program Award 2011-2012

The Writing Across the Curriculum and Writing across the Disciplines (WAC) program at CSI also invites campus programs (and departments) to apply for a WAC Award for the year 2011-2012. This year WAC collaborated with the Office of Disability Services, for example, in developing a flier, workshops, and a student handbook, and more broadly, in dealing with the role WAC can play in the success of students with disabilities. The award provides the assistance of a doctoral graduate student writing fellow who will work with the program throughout the year. Writing fellows will assist programs in research on WAC–related matters, technology, creating flyers and workshops, and developing teaching materials. Programs will work with their writing fellow and the coordinator throughout the year to accomplish their goals. Programs who are interested in a year-long collaboration with the WAC program are encouraged to apply with a year-long project. We especially welcome proposals that will have a lasting impact.

Applications should include:

-A proposal of three to five double-spaced pages that details the project, including its impact after the award
year, who will be involved, and the final product anticipated.

Participating programs will be asked to participate in and develop some co-sponsored WAC-related events throughout the year and will be expected to submit a final report at the end of their award period.

Please send proposals to: Hildegard Hoeller, Professor of English, WAC Coordinator, at hilhllr@aol.com by Friday, May 20, 2011.
