SESSION TITLE: Internationalization, WAC, and L2 Writers: Program Agendas and Curricular Innovation
ABSTRACT: In this presentation, data and implications derived from a mixed-method longitudinal research project on undergraduate L2 writers are presented in order to substantiate the claim that small, high-profile programs can provide institutional space and incentive to build a WAC-like, ESL-ready curriculum to support a growing body of linguistically-diverse L2 writers.
