Teaching and Learning

Come to the Writing Center

submitted by

The Writing Center is open!

The Augsburg Writing Center offers both online and in-person tutoring. Skilled students will work with you one-on-one at whatever stage of writing you are in – the idea-development stage, the drafting stage, and the revision stage – and can show you how to choose an appropriate essay topic, how to develop a thesis statement and paragraphs, how to revise your essay, or assist with any other writing needs you may have. Tutors will be alert listeners and ask questions, and will not judge or evaluate the work in progress. For more information, please visit our website. We look forward to seeing you!

In addition, if you would like for a tutor or the Director to come to your class to introduce the writing center, please sign up for a class visit: We will do our best to accommodate you.

Located on the second floor (across from Advising) of the Lindell Library in person (drop-in only): Sunday 5-8pm and Monday- Thursday 2-8pm
Online (appointment needed): Sunday-Thursday 6-8pm

ELearning Update/Reminder – Syllabus/Gradebook Alignment

submitted by

It is important that your syllabus is reflected in your gradebook so that students have a clear understanding of expectations and grading. The following are some suggestions for syllabus/gradebook alignment.

– Use the Augsburg University Syllabus Template as a model. You will find this template located in “Faculty Moodle Resources” under the “Faculty/Staff Help” tab. This template includes important university policies and an example of how your syllabus shows the percentage of points assigned to each graded item.

– The default gradebook setup is “Natural” (points-defined assessment with or without weights). Here is the recommended gradebook set up and how to add an activity like a Moodle Assignment, Forum, Quiz, or Attendance activity.

NOTE: this is a *condensed* version of the weekly update we email directly to all faculty.
For additional support, contact your LFC or IDT (Instructional Design Technologist).
