Writing and Communication Center

For Faculty

Course and Assignment Development


The Writing and Communication Center staff works closely with UW Bothell faculty members in a variety of ways. Staff members consult with faculty members who are developing course syllabi and assignments.

Consultations cover such issues as matching assignments to curricular goals, establishing explicit criteria for assessment of written work, using written and oral feedback to support student writing. Writing staff are also available for limited and extended classroom collaborations.

These materials are available to faculty on request. In addition, the Writing and Communication Center provides links to electronic resources on topics related to reading, writing, and speaking.
