WI Syllabus & Assignment Archive

The WAC Program is grateful to the faculty members who have generously shared their work with us and our University community.  If you have some WI course materials that you would like to share, please email them to us for consideration.

Please use the links below to view sample materials taken from some of Mason’s WI courses.  The annotations included in these sample documents are meant to help you identify where aspects of the WI criteria and outcomes are articulated.  They are not intended to comprehensively highlight all aspects of WI materials or best practices of writing pedagogy.


Sample Application: WI Outcomes

Sample Syllabi: WI Criteria only

Please note that these courses were developed prior to the WAC Committee’s approval of WI learning outcomes in spring 2021. These course designs therefore do not incorporate the new learning outcomes.
