The STEM & Writing Annual Partnership (SWAP) brings together NC State STEM scholars and writers to focus on a technology we all share: the written word.
*As of Spring 2015, we are no longer able to offer the SWAP program due to budget restrictions.*
SWAP taps into the knowledge-sharing potential of a university like NC State. During an immersive, week-long summer workshop, STEM PhD students and Post-Doctoral scholars will learn how to use writing in their classrooms as a technology for thinking, teaching, and learning. Then they will share what they learn by guest-lecturing in NCSU’s First Year Writing Program.
This gives first year writers a chance to engage with practicing writers in STEM disciplines. In turn, First Year Writing faculty can pass along ideas to their guest lecturers for incorporating writing into future STEM classes.
We hope you will join us in this partnership!
