Bio:WI+RE (Writing Instruction + Research Education) is a UCLA community focused on helping all learners succeed in their writing and research projects. We support the research and learning mission of the university by providing online access to a systematic foundation of research, writing and information literacy skills. As learners ourselves, we stay current on shifts in the information landscape, and create and provide opportunities for learners to get involved with a variety of methods and technologies used in research and research production, especially through the instructional process/learning process. Our resources are designed to empower learners with practical skills and information necessary to excel at UCLA and beyond.
