What happens when an English faculty and a Chemistry faculty partner to create a writing-to-learn program? You get M-Write. Listen to the latest episode in the Origin Stories podcast as English professor Anne Ruggles Gere, director of the Sweetland Writing Center, and Ginger Schultz, assistant professor of chemistry, discuss how they came together, from disparate fields, to create the M-Write program. Hear how M-Write uses pedagogy and the creation of software tools to help students use writing exercises to learn science, economics, and engineering concepts in large STEM courses. Professors Gere and Schultz talk to us about how they partnered with the Office of Academic Innovation to help scale M-Write, and explore their long-term plans for the program.
