Welcome to Old Dominion University's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP): Improving Disciplinary Writing

Old Dominion University's (ODU) Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is intended to improve upper-division undergraduate students' disciplinary writing - that is, writing that demonstrates a reasoning process supported by research and reflection on a problem, topic or issue - through two faculty development and engagement initiatives.  Writing is a critical skill that goes beyond demonstrating proficiency with the mechanics and structure of writing per se.  Writing is a means to communicate what has been learned.
