Article || Writing Assignments and Instruction at Ontario’s Publicly Funded Universities: A View from Three Disciplines

“In this study, we sought to describe university writing assignments and instruction for students in the early years of their undergraduate programs at Ontario’s publicly funded universities. The goal of the project was to create a case study of three disciplines, focusing on their provision of writing instruction and writing assignment design in first- and second-year courses. This study enables us to consider whether students are being given sufficient opportunities to develop their abilities to write/communicate at advanced levels and how this development is being addressed across the three fields of study.”
