CAS’ Writing Program Flips ESL Writing Course
CAS’ Writing Program revamped its ESL academic writing course to afford better learning by foreign students in the time available. With the guidance of the Center for Teaching & Learning, funding from its Faculty Fellows program, and technology support from Educational Technologies, lecturer Pary Fassihi created online instructional videos with built-in assessments and learning exercises. She offers students one-on-one online feedback sessions on their writing. And she also reorganized class time into lecture and group work using automated response devices.
