Lindsey Writes is
a writing across the curriculum (WAC) program that impacts
undergraduate students at the A.P. White Campus in Columbia.
Lindsey Writes is also Lindsey Wilson College's Quality
Enhancement Plan (QEP) for the College's 2013 reaccreditation.
Lindsey Writes includes three components:
- The Writing in the Core
- The Writing in the Disciplines
- The Writing for Life
There are three Student Learning
Outcomes (SLOs) related specifically to this
- Lindsey Wilson students will have the ability to use
writing to acquire, organize and present
information and ideas in a
variety of contexts.
- Lindsey Wilson students will increase their level of
perceived self-efficacy for writing.
- Lindsey Wilson students will
write effectively, using the conventions, style and vocabulary of
their major disciplines.
Lindsey Writes provides
training for faculty in the use of writing-to-learn strategies and
in techniques for teaching students how to write in their
disciplines. The program is also training students to serve
as writing fellows - writing tutors/mentors who are assigned to
assist faculty teaching specific, writing intensive courses.
The College launched this high-impact, five-year educational
program in January 2013.
