Developing Student Writing Skills in the Disciplines, Dec. 2 at 9 a.m.

submitted by denkinge@augsburg.edu

Are you interested in helping students to achieve better writing skills in your courses or across your curriculum? Join Jennifer Forsthoefel (English) and Ben Denkinger (Psychology, Assessment) on Thursday, December 2nd at 9am for a live Zoom presentation and discussion on best practices in writing instruction across disciplines. We will present data from a recent survey of over 100 Augsburg faculty on the kinds of writing they assign and how they assess it. We will also discuss best practices for writing instruction based on recommendations by the International Network of Writing Across the Curriculum Programs and the Council of Writing Program Administrators, among others. We will then evaluate new ways of building upon our students’ developing writing skills in our own disciplines and programs.

Changes to Google Instant Messaging

submitted by matthias@augsburg.edu

Happy Cyber Monday! Augsburg has switched to Google’s newest platform for Instant Messaging – Google Chat. This keeps Augsburg in line with Google’s roadmap and provides better integration between instant messaging and other Google products. The most noticeable changes are a slightly different interface on your Google mail screen and the discontinuation of the Google “Hangouts” mobile application. Check out Google Chat Help to learn more. Please contact your LFC or the techdesk if you have any additional questions.
