This edited collection explores theoretical and practical applications of the Writing-Enriched Curriculum (WEC) approach, an innovative and sustainable alternative to writing across the curriculum and writing in the disciplines. The collection’s purpose is to inform writing program administrators, teachers, scholars, and university officials about the model’s potential to transform the way writing is used and supported across courses and curricula in higher education. To this end, contributors offer theoretically grounded accounts of WEC or WEC-like programs and localized research that demonstrate the model’s impact and effectiveness within and across institutional contexts. The book has three sections: “The WEC Approach,” which describes the theoretical and practical basis informing WEC programs; “Accounts of Departmentally-Focused Implementation,” which considers specific campus initiatives to build WEC programs; and “Extensions and Contextual Variation,” which showcases ways in which the approach has led to cross-unit collaborations and varieties of implementation. Contributors bring scholarly and administrative experience to their investigations of WEC, and each has a track record of research and publication. Writing-Enriched Curricula: Models of Faculty-Driven and Departmental Transformation is the first collection dedicated to this innovative and tested approach.
