Kathleen Blake Yancey asserts that the first-year essay be more gateway than gatekeeping. Through facilitated workshops, the Writing and Learning Centre at OCAD University introduced first-year students to research and writing strategies to address specific learning objectives of their art and design history research essay. Students were encouraged to think critically about their own authorial intention, context, perception, and to reflect upon their processes of writing and studio practice beyond the university and towards art and design professional communities. We trace the genealogy of these workshops via insights gathered from WLC staff, faculty and student participants.
