Description

This course is designed to help students gain the skills needed to succeed as Writing Fellows. To develop these skills, course content will integrate practical information related to the responsibilities of Fellows with discussions about writing-to-learn teaching philosophies. Through readings, discussions, and in-class activities, Fellows will learn how to use Canvas to manage student assignments as well as hone their skills in writing responses to assignment prompts. Class meetings will involve group discussions about topics relevant to writing fellows as well as short writing activities including reflection pieces and short minute writes.

Course Requirements:

Acceptance as a MWrite Writing Fellow

Class Format:

Instruction Mode: Hybrid synchronous & asynchronous format. Course will be fully remote

For the first part of the semester, students will meet virtually in smaller groups once a week to engage in group discussions.

After the first four weeks of virtual class meetings, coursework will center work in individual M-Write courses.

Learning Mode: The course will use Canvas for all asynchronous components. Optional synchronous elements will be conducted using Zoom (or possibly the BigBlueButton). Students will need to have access to a microphone (optional: a camera).

Course Testing/Assessment: There is no testing for this course. Grades are assessed credit/no credit and students receive credit for completing online assignments.
