Directory of the College’s Online Assets

Welcome Faculty!

Welcome, faculty!  This toolkit has been designed to support you in supporting your students. 

Question: How much time do you spend addressing non-content items (grammar, APA formatting, basic writing issues) in grading feedback? 

Question: How many times do you feel torn because you want to encourage student to use the resources but you don't have the time to go into detail about where they are or how to use them? 

This toolkit can help:

-faculty focus more on content with students; less on writing basics

-students develop better writing skills faster, leading to better grades

-students use resources more often, leading to better retention for them (and less chasing for you)

 

You know your students and you know how best to share these materials with them.  Post, copy, and/or paste items in your courses, announcements, via email--whatever you choose.  Share will all or with one--it's up to you.

This toolkit contains:

  • Single PowerPoint slides
  • Written prompts for emails
  • Written suggestions to use the specific resources within grading feedback
  • Short videos on how and why to use the specific resources

 

We welcome your feedback and suggestions about the Writing section of the Faculty Toolkit.  Please share your insights with us so we can make the Toolkit the best it can be for you.  Tammy Hopps & Cassie Sampson
