A new tool implemented by faculty in the College of Humanities and the Arts, “Writer’s Help 2.0,” is now available for all faculty and students through Canvas. The online writer’s handbook focuses on all aspects of the writing process, including drafting, revising and editing.
The handbook provides information on what makes “good writing,” an introduction to academic and professional writing, and advice on how to communicate cross-culturally, among other features. The handbook includes assignable modules to allow faculty to integrate lessons into their courses and includes game-like quizzing to help students work through grammar and writing topics.
The Center for Faculty Development and H&A are hosting two workshops for faculty on Monday, Nov. 9, from 1-2:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 10, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in IRC 210. The workshops will allow faculty members to learn about the online tool and how to incorporate it into courses. Lunch will be provided; RSVP required by Nov. 2.
