Faculty Discuss Writing

The following are a series of videos on writing, prepared with CSUSM faculty. In this series, faculty from several departments on campus talk about the writing process. Often times, when students get a writing assignment, they don’t really know what is expected of them. They might not know why they are writing and they may not know what the finished product is supposed to be like.

Faculty were asked questions like:

  • Why do you ask students to write?
  • What are your expectations for writing, especially as regards to conventions of your own field?
  • What is the role of writing in your own life and work?

It is hoped that some of the mystery of the writing process can be cleared for students by hearing answers to questions  from campus experts.

Project conceived by former Writing Center Director, Dr. Jeffrey Harlig, in consultation with faculty.
