Academy for Writing: Integrating High Impact Practices
University Writing is announcing the second of two summer 2021 Academies for Writing. This academy provides faculty the time and resources for integrating high-impact writing and communication instruction, including ePortfolios, into programs or majors, creating ePortfolio curriculum to support other HIPs (such as internships, study abroad programs or undergraduate research), using HIPs (such as ePortfolios) to drive undergraduate professional development and career placement or designing curriculum to support discipline-specific writing or communication skills. The academy will provide structured support for faculty to design materials to support students’ demonstration of learning and competence. University Writing invites applications from departmental or program teams consisting of 3–4 faculty or administrative professionals who have significant contact with students.
The academy will consist of 9 half-day workshop/discussion sessions with faculty from University Writing occurring between May 2021 and August 2021 with implementation between fall 2021 and fall 2022.
