Patrick Bahls studied mathematics at the University of Denver and Vanderbilt University, earning his doctoral degree at Vanderbilt in 2002. After teaching at Vanderbilt and the University of Illinois he moved to the University of North Carolina (UNC) Asheville, where he is now Associate Professor of Mathematics and director of the University Honors Program. Writing has always played a central role in his classes, where students complete a number of activities designed both to help them learn to master the conventions of mathematical writing as well as to assist their learning of mathematical ideas. Bahls served on UNC Asheville’s committee on writing-intensive courses for four years and is now a member of its committee on first-year Writing. He has presented on issues related to writing across the curriculum, writing in the disciplines, and writing-to-learn at several regional, national, and international conferences, including the annual meeting of the Carolinas Writing Program Administrators and the biannual International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference. He has also led numerous faculty development workshops on writing and teaching writing, focusing on writing in the quantitative disciplines.
