The Writing Intensive Curriculum (WIC) Program

The Writing Intensive Curriculum Program supports and instructs faculty across the disciplines who are developing and teaching writing intensive courses as part of OSU's Baccalaureate Core requirements. Through faculty seminars, lunches, departmental consulting, review of course proposals, and the newsletter Teaching with Writing, WIC promotes excellence in writing and fosters a culture of writing at Oregon State University.

Do you need tips for teaching a WIC course remotely?

The WIC program is still here to help you deliver robust writing instruction in the disciplines.

We've created a list of core WIC practices and innovative options for low-stakes writing-to-learn, research, revision, and peer review online for you to use as you plan for and conduct the first weeks of class.

Please contact Anita Helle (Interim WIC Director) and Marisa Yerace (WIC GTA) with your WIC-related questions.
