Over the summer, the Writing Centres of the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, and Wilfrid Laurier University collaborated on the production of an online and publicly-available writing resource, Taking a WID approach, the website introduces students to writing three assignment genres — a lab report, a case study report, and a reflective essay — through descriptive text, models, and interactive activities.

Please check it out. We’d love to have your feedback as we move into phase two of the project. We also invite you to take advantage of the resource. Use it in your writing centres and share it with your institutional partners. Feel free to drop us a note to let us know how you’re using it and how it’s working for you.
