Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP)
Adventures in Writing is the title of the Quality
Enhancement Plan (QEP) for Shaw University. It is a program designed to improve
student writing by focusing on the process (adventure) of writing. Through this
plan, students will be able to conquer their assignments.
QEP calls for two major strategies to facilitate student learning. Opening a Writing
Center is one of those strategies. The Center allows for more one-on-one
support for students to engage in the writing process. We hope that everyone on
campus will take advantage of this resource, and that its presence opens up
discussions about what effective academic writing is.
second strategy targets ENG 110, our basic composition course. Students in this
course will be required to take part in a special program in the Writing Center,
spending part of class each week working in a small-group setting. The program
will delve into all aspects of the writing process, but emphasize revision and
this plan we will be able to get an excellent picture of which techniques are
helping our students to develop, and in the future, guide students more
effectively as they take on the adventure of writing.
