Professional Writing Program Awarded Blended Learning Grant
In fall 2011, PWP instructors Lea Chartock, Scott Moses, and Michelle Von Euw will develop course materials for English 393 that replace one day of in-class time with computer-mediated activities. These blended learning or "hybrid" sections will now meet face-to-face once weekly. Six sections of English 393 will pilot the hybrid course in spring 2012. Because so many undergraduate students take AWP and PWP courses, the innovative approaches designed under the auspices of this program promise to have widespread impact on the campus community. For more information on the English 393 Blended Learning Initiative, please contact Lea Chartock (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Student Testimonials document the value of the coursework.
