In this session, faculty collaborative group drawn from multiple disciplines and university units reports on an initiative to improve research and writing instruction in upper-division major-specific courses. Presenters showcase the initiative’s intervention, a faculty learning community (FLC) whose members were recruited from across the university to study evidence-based best practices for writing, critical thinking, and information literacy instruction. The session will also detail the how the FLC was shaped by institutional assessment data, discuss how it builds on local faculty development traditions, and assess its impact through analysis of course documents created by faculty participants.
