Description:

Although the WPA's contribution to writing faculty development and curriculum development is widely recognized, less well-known is the important role research plays. The aim of this collection is to develop that understanding as well as help others identify additional opportunities for significant intellectual work. The essays in this collection describe inquiry that has been conducted by WPAs whose writing programs are the sites of both research and application. Part I describes and conceptualizes specific research projects conducted by WPAs, providing a detailed picture of the richness and complexity of administrative research. In Part II, the contributors raise and reflect on issues about WPA research in general, drawing on concrete experiences of particular WPAs and specific writing programs.
