3rd Place - Empirical Faculty/Staff
This study seeks to determine FHSU faculty attitudes, knowledge, and practices related to the incorporation of writing into their courses. In spring 2021, the Fort Hays State University Writing Across the Curriculum Committee partnered with the Docking Institute of Public Affairs to survey undergraduate faculty. The 140 respondents to the 85-item survey represent a cooperation rate of 23.02%. The data reveals an overall positive culture of writing at the university, where most faculty believe writing instruction is a shared responsibility across campus and across a student’s program of study. These faculty recognize the importance of FHSU’s writing-related CORE outcomes. They incorporate both low-stakes and high-stakes writing in their courses and provide various forms of guidance and support for that writing. They assign writing from multiple genres (44 identified) and know the important reasons why they assign writing.
