Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Has it really been 12 years since the Department of Horticultural Science entered the WEC program? Horticulture faculty were pioneering members of the Writing-Enriched Curriculum program at the University of Minnesota. We'll look back at the development of WEC in the department and across the University and new opportunities for considering writing in plant science and food systems undergraduate majors.

Dan's Bio: 
As a teaching consultant, I work with members of the University community to improve student writing and learning in all departments and courses. I provide faculty and instructors with one-on-one consultations about their courses, help to facilitate panels and workshops as part of the Teaching with Writing program, and work with the WAC/WID team to develop and implement the U’s innovative Writing-Enriched Curriculum program. I joined the Writing Across the Curriculum team in January 2015. Prior to arriving at Minnesota, I served as Curriculum Leader in Business Communication at the University of Oklahoma and Director of the University Writing Center at the University of Utah. I earned my PhD. in Rhetorical Studies and a graduate certificate in Rhetorics of Inquiry from the University of Iowa in 2001. My research interests include the history of teaching writing, rhetoric, and writing studies.
