Abstract

WI+RE (Writing Instruction + Research Education) is a learner-led team of undergraduate and graduate student employees at UCLA Library who apply values-driven design principles and grassroots instructional media production techniques to foster breakthroughs in research, reading, and writing for their fellow learners. The WI+RE Way (UCLA Library WI+RE, 2019c) is a collaboratively authored manifesto for learner-led design co-authored by WI+RE's learner-designers in collaboration with library staff.
