About WI+RE

Design for learning, led by learners.

Hi there!

WI+RE is a learner-led community at UCLA focused on helping everyone succeed in their writing and research projects.

The WI+RE team leverages a learner-centered design toolkit to create and continually improve open online learning modules. We also experiment and reflect on our process in the WI+RE sandbox, and share the principles behind our work in our manifesto, the WI+RE way.
